The Seattle Mariners are marking their 35th anniversary with a special commemorative patch.
Yeah, it doesn’t seem to us like the Mariners have been around so long, but it’s true.
A patch with the logo will be worn on the right sleeve of Mariners home and road jerseys during the 2012 season.
Other patches the Mariners have worn on their uniforms have included a tribute to Dave Niehaus (2011), the team’s 30th Anniversary (2007), the All-Star Game (2001) and an MLB-wide tribute to the Negro Leagues in 1985.
The Mariners also announced the Northwest Green billed caps will be worn on home Mondays and Fridays next season with the Northwest Green alternate jerseys. The dark navy tops will continue to be an alternate option for road games. The design has been tweaked this year to read “Seattle” instead of “Mariners” on the front.
