Who is The Best Mariners Player of All Time?

Ken Griffey Jr has been widely recognized as the best player of the Seattle Mariners.

Griffey cemented his reputation as one of the most productive and exciting players of his period throughout the first 11 seasons of his career with the Seattle Mariners (1989–1999). During that time, he amassed 1,752 hits, 398 home runs, 1,152 RBI, and 167 stolen bases.

He finished his career with a batting average of.297, won the Most Valuable Player award for the American League in 1997, and led the American League in home runs on four separate occasions (1994, 1997, 1998, and 1999). In his very first at-bat in the major leagues, he doubled.

Both the Seattle Mariners and the Atlanta Braves expressed interest in signing Griffey when he was a free agent. After much internal debate and internal conflict, Griffey made the difficult choice on February 18, 2009 to accept a contract offer from the Mariners.
