The 1995 season was a magical one for the Seattle Mariners. It ended with their first division title and postseason berth, along with the most memorable play in franchise history.
Following the strike of 1994, nobody really knew what to expect from the M's in 1995. The club had just two winning seasons in 18 years, putting a lot of pressure on third-year manager Lou Piniella.
With superstars Randy Johnson, Edgar Martinez and Ken Griffey Jr. on the roster, a playoff run certainly wasn't out of the question. In December of '94, Seattle signed Jay Buhner, which would prove to be a vital move and key to its success.
Even though the Mariners won 116 games in 2001, 1995 is the trademark season for this club. Here are the moments that helped to keep hope alive for baseball in the Emerald City.
