WATCH: Jamie Moyer inducted into Mariners Hall of Fame
Veteran southpaw Jamie Moyer was inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Prior to Saturday's game with the Rangers (TEX 11, SEA 3), the Mariners inducted left-hander Jamie Moyer into the team's Hall of Fame. During the ceremony he joked "I guess I’m retired. It’s official."
Here's the ceremony:
Moyer, now 52, pitched with the Mariners from 1996-2006, going 145-87 with a 3.97 ERA (112 ERA+). His best years were 2001-03, when he went 54-21 with a 3.34 ERA (127 ERA+). Moyer was an All-Star in 2003 and three times finished in the top six of the AL Cy Young voting (1999, 2001, 2003).
Moyer ranks first in Mariners franchise history in win (145), second in innings (2,093), third in WAR (34.6), third in strikeouts (1,239) and fourth in games pitched (324). He helped the team to the postseason in 1997 and 2001.
Of course, Moyer is well known for his longevity, having pitching until age 49. He retired with 269 wins and a career 4.25 ERA (103 ERA+) while suiting up for eight teams.
Moyer is the ninth person in the Mariners Hall of Fame, joining Alvis Davis, Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, Randy Johnson, Dan Wilson, Kevin Griffey Jr., Lou Piniella and announcer Dave Niehaus.
