- Mariners No. 19 prospect Joe Rizzo hit his first AFL homer last night!
Congrats to Joe Rizzo on his 1st AFL homer. He had a fantastic season in Modesto and was our Alvin Davis “Mr Mariner” award winner last week Seattle. The award is given to the person who like Alvin, is a great person off the field and a great player on it. https://t.co/2sj5AQGXBn— Andy McKay (@AndyMcKayHG) October 4, 2019
