Since the Seattle Mariners first pitch on April 6, 1977, the Emerald City has witnessed the “M‘s” evolve from scrappy expansion franchise to establishing record-setting win totals. And the bond between players and Pacific Northwest is apparent in an all-time roster so familiar, it’s on a first-name basis: Edgar, Alvin, Junior, Ichiro, Randy, Jamie, Jay, and Lou.  This September, as one of their all-time greats and future Hall-of-Famer Ken Griffey Jr. hangs up his cleats after 22 remarkable seasons, A&E Home Entertainment and Major League Baseball Productions commemorate the glorious chapters in the history of the franchise with THE ESSENTIAL GAMES OF THE SEATTLE MARINERS .

Available on September 28, this four-disc collector’s set ($39.95srp) showcases four full television broadcasts that sits at the heart of the love affair between fans and ball club – from the 1995 AL West one-game playoff to their win against the Angels two days following 9/11 which propelled them to the AL West Championship.  Digitally preserved for optimal viewing, the games – which feature the most beloved Mariners superstars such as Griffey Jr., Edgar Martinez, Randy Johnson, Alvin Davis, Ichiro Suzuki, Jay Buhner and Jamie Moyer — are also enhanced with the actual full-game radio play-by-play from the KIRO Radio team, packing the games with memory-jarring “My, oh my!” and “Fly Away” celebrations!
