About

This site was originally entirely devoted to gathering stories and memories from Mariners fans about the 1995 team. I’ve since added some interviews with people connected to the season, most notably one with Andy Benes. But my primary goal is still to collect stories from fans.

So if you’ve got a story you want to share, please send it to me at letters@1995mariners.com and I’ll put it up on the site. Anything related to the season is fair game: the comeback to win the division from the Angels, the incredible series against the Yankees, the loss to the Indians. Stories about off-field things like the strike and the rumors that the Mariners were moving to Tampa or some other city are also welcome. Pictures, audio/video clips, and any memorabilia you might want to share with other fans will be gratefully accepted as well.

Donations are welcomed; they help support this site and cover the cost of hosting it on its own domain. You can make them with PayPal, with a check or money order, or with whatever else you might want to send. I do hope that any donation would be at least a couple dollars, because otherwise you’ll mostly be supporting eBay or the post office instead of this site. As a thank you, I can send each donor a file with all the stories and interviews on this site gathered together in one handy place. You can send a donation to me, Arne Christensen, by clicking the Paypal button to the right, or write to me at the letters@1995mariners.com address for any other kind of donation you’d like to make.

You can also become a fan of the site on its Facebook page, where I’ve been posting various things related to the ’95 team and today’s Mariners that don’t really belong on this site. This site will not change much, if at all, until the M’s are either close to or back in the playoffs.

One thought on “About

  1. Seattle Times from the ’95 Playoff Run
    The Wife’s on me to cut down on ‘all my stuff’, which includes all the Seattle Times Baseball Extra sections I set aside during the ’95 playoff run.
    My collection start with the October 2, 1995 A.L Title Game, includes the iconic picture of Junior sliding home on October 9th, and it ends with the 12 page Commemorative addition on 10-19..
