Fly, Fly Away!

Published by Steve Campion. Category: Sports & Recreation
Quick Lists are our stripped-down, single-focus lists: No elaborate introduction; just straight to the facts.

Ask any Mariner fan “who hit the most home runs in a Seattle uniform?” and he/she will almost certainly say Griffey. Junior consistently smacked balls over the Kingdome fences in the 1990s, including back-to-back 56 home run years and six seasons over 40. Your Mariners fan friends will likely get the names of the next two men on the list, too, but might reverse the order. Test them on the next seven players. Can they name everyone in the top ten? Can YOU name them?  These are men who most often prompted the late Dave Niehaus to shout “fly, fly away!”
