The Seattle Mariners had an enjoyable 2022 season.
For the first time since 2001, the City of Seattle got a chance to experience postseason baseball.
Last year’s Mariners team won 90 games and secured the second Wild Card spot in the American League.
Their run didn’t last too long, but they took care of the Toronto Blue Jays in the Wild Card Series before matching up with the Houston Astros in the ALDS.
Seattle was eliminated in Game 3 of that series, but the players and fans got a chance to experience something special at T-Mobile Park.
Shortstop J.P. Crawford stopped by MLB Network to discuss what it was like to play in the postseason and feel the energy of the Seattle crowd in October.
