Art Thiel (au). How the Mariners went from the bottom to the top of MLB, & how Seattle became a city with a passion for the game. From their litigious birth in 1977,  the Mariners were greeted with an epic yawn by the region. But by the early 1990s the Mariners had a winning season while Seattle became an epicenter of high-tech entrepreneurs. With the help of a Japanese billionaire, McCaw Cellular moxie, Microsoft-made money, the Mariners acquired a wealthy new ownership & a new manager, Lou Piniella, that gave the franchise credibility. Nat. baseball icons: Ken Griffey, Jr., Randy Johnson, Alex Rodriguez, & Ichiro Suzuki helped take the team on a ride to the baseball heights. A colorful & entertaining story of the confluence of sports, money, & civic passion. Illus.
