Thunderstruck, Yeah!

Tomorrow night in San Francisco, Ichiro’ll will play in his seventh All-Star Game (and make his sixth start), while Mariner closer JJ Putz will make his first All-Star roster. Overall, in the 31 All-Star Games played during the 31 seasons of Mariner baseball, the franchise will have sent 33 different players to the midsummer classic... Here's my breakdown of every Mariner All-Star since 1977, which I'll update in its comments section following tomorrow's game.

BWT, AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" blares at Safeco Field whenever Putz comes in to close a game, while Usher's "Yeah!" often plays when Ichiro steps up to bat... And the cool Fisk/Parker/Luzinski sequence above comes from an ad in my program for the '79 All-Star Game, depicting action from the '77 game at Yankee Stadium.
