Lou To Be Inducted To Mariners Hall of Fame For 10 seasons the Emerald City watched the Seattle Mariners, win or lose, under Lou Piniella’s leadership.  Given his success of getting the M’s to the playoffs on several occasions it’s only fitting that this Saturday he becomes the first Seattle Mariner’s skipper inducted into the Mariner’s Hall of Fame. No other skipper in Seattle Mariners history has had the success that “Sweet” Lou enjoyed through most of the ’90s and into the early 2000s. Lou captured Seattle’s heart with his fiery attitude, savvy managing style and most certainly with his very boisterous on field arguments with umpires. To celebrate, I’ll remind you of a few of my favorite Lou Piniella stories. Junior’s Cow Whenever you bring up the Mariner’s 1995 season most people remember the crazy run the Mariners went on during August and September to squeak their way into the post season for the very first time.  What about spring training that year however? That’s a lot of steak.
