What they Wore: There were a couple of details worth noting. This year marked the 125th League Anniversary and all teams around the league wore a commemorative patch in honor it. Mariners wore these Anniversary Patches on the Right sleeve. Also too, Russell Athletic made a small change to their jock tag sometime during the season. Some jerseys had the jock tag from last year and some had the new, likely used until overstock on the tags were used up.

Summary: Other than the Anniversary Patch and Jock Tag on some jerseys there were no changes from last year.

Alternate

Summary: This is the first year the team had an alternate Jersey to accompany the Home and Road ensembles. This vintage teal Alternate is unique for a couple of reasons: 1. Obviously, the 125th Ani-Patch is unique to this year. But, more importantly, 2. This is the only year the crest is outlined in White, giving it a very bold look. It definitely stands out among its other Teal contemporaries.
