Mariners Social Media Spotlight: Ham Swaggerty, Reba the Oakland Clubhouse Dog, Little League World Series

Full of Swag. Full of Ham.

Gooooooood morning, Mariners fans! This is your captain, Shay, and here are some social media posts to get you through the next four hours before today’s first pitch.

I lied, this is Captain.

  • From our own Zach Mason:
  • Our links guy, Anders, reminds us that this week marked an important anniversary in Mariners Twitter (and now real-life Mariners) lore.
  • I was waiting for my friend during her PT for a PCL injury (OOF) and I decided to make this TikTok for our account on that clock app

  • There might be a new backyard addition coming to the Winker household soon...
  • Not to be ignored is this interaction Jesse had with a “fan” (read: clown) in the comment section of that post:
  • A reminder that Taylor and Emani Trammell are world class cuties. AND they have a whole article written about their wedding relationship on Essence. Certified cuties.
  • Erik Swanson’s mini me had some tractor time this week hauling..another tractor? Tractor-ception.
  • Reba the clubhouse pup of the Oakland A’s is certainly giving Tucker a run for his money. Look at those EYES!

We love Tucker. But we kind of love Reba, too. (Courtest of Matt Festa’s IG) #baseballtiktok #baseball #clubhousedogs #seattlemariners #mlbtiktok #baseballfyp
