The Mariners are cool and all, but our baseball fandom is now focused on a few small stars.
This is the first time in the Seattle league’s history that a team has made it this far. Here’s all you need to know to cheer ‘em on.
- Their first World Series game is against New England this Thursday, Aug. 17, at noon. Watch on ESPN.
- Team manager Christian Shewey is a dentist who was once drafted by the Mariners.
- They’ve got some pop. In three qualifying games to get to the World Series, Northeast Seattle outscored their opponents 33-1.
- If they make it all the way, mark your calendars for Sunday, Aug. 27 for the final game of the Series.
