1998 Mariners

  • July 31, 1998: Randy Johnson was traded by the Seattle Mariners to the Houston Astros for a player to be named later, Freddy Garcia, and Carlos Guillén. The Astros eventually would send John Halama (October 1, 1998) to the M’s to complete the trade.

What they Wore: There were no special anniversaries for the team this year. So only the team logo patch was worn on the home and road jerseys. As for the Alternates, Road grey vests were added to the lineup in addition to the white vests and Batting Practice Mesh jerseys that they wore last year.

Alternate Road Grey Vest

Summary: This Jersey doesn’t appear to have been “manufactured” as sleeveless. Unlike the white vests, there is no manufacturers word mark on the yoke. It has been said that the players like the home vests so much they took matters in to their own hands and cut the sleeves off of the traditional road grey’s. This would explain the absence of the word mark.
