Welcome to the first-ever Mariners Social Media Spotlight, a space to recap what our Mariners and the world of baseball have been talking about in the social sphere throughout the past week. We must give credit to the folks over at Pinstripe Alley for giving us the idea. Thanks, Yanks.

If you’re not already following us on social, visit these hyperlinks to stay up-to-date on all things Lookout Landing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

In Mariners Land

  • Casey Sadler is in search of some rainier cherries, big time.
  • If you’re looking for a punch to the crotch today you can stop right here because the Mariners playoff drought is officially longer than the life of the iPod.
  • Cal Raleigh and Penn Murfee take to their Instagram Stories to bid farewell to Donnie Walton after he was traded to the Giants
  • Several Mariners took advantage of having an off-day in the Big Apple and played tourist and we got to see via Instagram Stories. Hopefully they took part in my favorite NYC activity, rat-watching in the Subway
Marco, Ty, and Manny getting taking in the sights and sites

In Baseball Land

  • The Los Angeles Dodgers announced via social media that they’ll be the first team to don Pride themed hats during a game! Exciting!
