‘Shipwrecked’ Mariners author to appear at Costco

May 1, 2012

By Staff

Seattle Mariners fans can dig deep into the team’s troubles in “Shipwrecked: A Peoples’ History of the Seattle Mariners” — author Jon Wells’ account.

The author is scheduled to appear at Costco, 1801 10th Ave. N.W., from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 5 to sign the book. Fans can meet the author and discuss the book and Mariners baseball.

Wells accuses team executives of shortsightedness and stubbornness, even as results failed both fans and the team’s bottom line. Despite the challenges, Wells sees optimism ahead for the team.

“Despite the heroic efforts of many great players, the Seattle Mariners haven’t been to the World Series because their owners’ relentless passion for the bottom line has repeatedly undercut chances for success on the field,” a passage from the book reads.

Wells, a Seattle resident, is also the publisher of the independent Mariners’ game program The Grand Salami. Learn more about the program and “Shipwrecked” at www.grandsalami.net.
