Home runs were flying off the bats of Arizona Diamondbacks players on Wednesday at Chase Field — six in all, including one of the inside-the-park variety by Ryan Roberts in the team’s 14-10 win over the Seattle Mariners. But of all the balls that left the park, a home run hit by Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager resulted in perhaps the highlight of the day.
Sitting in the right field stands, 11-year-old fan Dylan Fowler reached high and made a spectacular bare-handed catch of the home run ball. Dylan was visited by Diamondbacks mascot Baxter the Bobcat afterward and according to the broadcasters, received four free tickets to an upcoming game and a discount at the pro shop as a reward for his impressive catch. Dylan was also interviewed by a member of the FOX Sports television team. All in all, not a bad way to spend a day at the ballpark.

It’s that time of year again in Major League Baseball. Summer is approaching, players are dropping like flies with injuries and your minor league players are progressing nicely. For several teams in the league, now is the time to start making some changes.
In the case of the Seattle Mariners, it’s time to start the process now.
The Mariners have one of the best...
Per a report from the Tacoma Neww-Tribune we've learned yesterday that two of the best youngsters in the Seattle Mariners organization will be moving on from the Jackson Generals. Both promoted to AAA Tacoma Rainiers.

The Seattle Mariners Farm Arms
Today we’re kicking off a new monthly duel series here at NWSB called “prospect watch.” Each month I’ll be writing two pieces, one covering the top three-four pitchers in the Mariners system, and the other covering the top three-four hitters in the system.
For our inaugural piece we’ll be exploring the pitching side of things. It’s not often...
You would be hard pressed to find positive milestones on the current Seattle Mariners squad if you really looked. Their last few years of futility have garnered nothing but negative responses and negative outcomes.
Ichiro Suzuki finally brought a positive to this franchise when he singled against the Arizona Diamonbacks three days ago.
That hit was his 2500th...
As the 38-year-old Ichiro Suzuki remains in descent, the Seattle Mariners are reportedly willing to deal the future National Baseball Hall of Famer prior to the trade deadline on July 31. Ichiro, a Japanese icon who made his debut for … Continue reading →
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the Seattle Mariners farm system in his second prospects report. Today he covers hitting, going over how prospect hitters Francisco Martinez, Nick Franklin and newly drafted Mike Zunino should fare coming up through the minor league system.
Jason Vargas is Seattle's winningest pitcher this year at 7-7, but he's lost three games in a row, and Wednesday's 4 1/3-inning, 10-run outing leaves his ERA at 4.66. More than that, he's leaving his pitches up. He'd allowed five homers in the previous three starts before yielding five homers Wednesday at Arizona, the worst home run performance of his career...
Ichiro Suzuki doesn't like to get days off, and he accentuated his desire to play in dramatic fashion once he got back on the field. The Seattle Mariners right fielder opened Tuesday's game with his 2,500th career hit and went on to collect three more hits, two of them doubles, in the Mariners' 10-inning, 12-9 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. "If you look...
PHOENIX Ichiro Suzuki showed again Tuesday that he can do about anything he wants at the plate. This time it was enough to render one of the Diamondbacks' best offensive games of the season moot.
Suzuki had four hits, including the 2,500th of his major league career, but it was his sacrifice fly in the eighth inning that started the Diamondbacks on the way to a 12-9, 10-ininng...
To all critics who think the Mariners don’t have any good fans, or that these fans fill an unwelcoming ballpark, look no further than, “Cheeseburger!” This fastfood taunt was yelled by a Mariners fan sitting behind the camcorder this past Saturday’s game, while Giants 3rd baseman Pablo Sandoval (otherwise known as Kung Fu Panda in MLB circles), was batting. It’s little...
