A tribute to the players who toiled for the Seattle Mariners 1977 to 1984-ish. From the tribute CD - Seattle...A Baseball Town
The Early Days Words and Music by Deuce Bender
Diego Sequi threw the very first pitch Ruppert Jones, the first guy we admired Craig Reynolds at short, Darrell Johnson held court With Tom Paciorek, Bruce Bochte and Danny Meyer
Julio Cruz he had wings on his shoes Bob Stinson, ole Scrap Iron to us Glenn Abbott, Mike Parrott never threw in the towel And Lenny Randle once blew the ball foul
(Chorus) In the Ms early years all the players we cheered Were castoffs and young guys just wanting to play Though they dont have the fame, they still wore the name They were Mariners in the early days
Lee Stanton, Leon Roberts won the Ms triple crown Maury Wills tried to fire the team up Enrique Romo, Shane Rawley coming in in the ninth To save Floyd Bannister, Jim Beattie and Rick Honeycutt
Willie Horton, Jeff Burroughs, Al Cowens passed through As their playing days came to a close Richie Zisk, Gorman Thomas, Gaylord Perry stopped by Rene Lachemann was doing all right Mario Mendoza once hit .245
Bridge: Phil Bradley, Jim Presley, Spike Owen could play Bill Caudill was crazy, Mike Morgan was young Bob Kearney, Scott Bradley behind the plate Dave Valle emerged, Alvin Davis came on
Jack Perconte, Harold Reynolds, Billy Swift on the mound Mike Moore and Mark Langston were strong And everyone thought we see wonderful things From Danny Tartabull and Ivan Calderon But Dick Williams couldnt fix what was wrong
