Seattle Mariners

The Seattle Mariners joined the league as an expansion team in 1977, and opened up a name-the-team contest as was common in the latter half of the 20th century.

Over 600 original submissions were entered, but ownership went with Mariners to honor the regions natural connection Seattleites have with the sea.
