Mariners All-Access from ROOT SPORTS

Root_sports_logoThis week on Mariners All-Access from ROOT SPORTS, the logistics behind those postgame celebrations, how to throw a cut fastball, and pitchers who love to hit.

Mike Hampton on hitting – With more interleague play this week it’s fitting to hear from one of the best hitting pitchers throughout his career – bullpen coach Mike Hampton. We’ll hear how he prepared that part of his game, and how Wade Miley takes a similar approach—and helped his own cause last week.

Pitching Mechanics – Nick Vincent reveals how he throws his favorite pitch—the cutter.

Seager vs. Curry – Long before Steph Curry was the unanimous NBA MVP he played against Kyle Seager in a high school game. The Mariners third baseman tells how he held Curry below his average – and we give you the kicker to the story.

The Art of a Post-Game Celebration – We’ve experience a lot of Gatorade baths already this year especially with the Mariners already surpassing their walk-off win total from all of last year. We take a closer look at the inner workings of how the celebration takes places and culminates in that picture perfect moment.

Best Dancer on the Team – A fun Magic 8 Ball question as players ask if they’ll be known as the best dancer on the team.

What Can They Cook – Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer which has most of us thinking about BBQ’s and picnics. Find out what the Mariners can cook.

All Star Softball Classic – A recap of the annual event at Safeco that raised $750,000 that goes toward serving youth through the United Way.

Ken Griffey Jr. HOF Moment – “Cheetahs Don’t Stretch.” That’s what Griffey told his teammates about his ability to get after it on the field during batting practice without any warmup.

High Speed Review – With so many wins and heroes it’s not hard to put together a fun look back on the best highlights from the week.
