    Thanks for the timely reminder, Kenny! I just went to Borders.com and saw they have it listed-in fact, when I searched on "Seattle Pilots" your tome was the first one listed!

    While I'll remain loyal to my beloved Washington Senators I'll definitely have to pick this one up-although I STILL haven't forgotten that the Pilots had their ONLY winning record against the Senators in 1969! h

    New Pilots book

    The 1969 Seattle Pilots; Baseball's One-Year Team has arrived. I received my 10 author's copies yesterday. I hope all of the Pilots' fans out there will enjoy it. It was a labor of love for me and I'd love your feedback. I wish the publisher (McFarland) had allowed color photos but I am not in a position to "Call the shots". There are the familiar Pilot photos along with never seen before photos including action shots. I think you will find the interviews at the end of the book both informative and at times funny. Thanks guys (& gals).

    almost a new Pilots photo

    Here's a great one of Steve Hovley taken in April of 1970....he's on the Brewers but you can see the "P" has been scratched off of his helmet.

    Garlic Gulch

    Sick's Stadium was in an area called Garlic Gulch, due to the large Italian population there. it is a couple miles South East from the Downtown area. Many of these citizens were truck farmers who had gardens in the area. There is a famous garden that used to sit up on the hill behind the outfield, I think it was there when the Rainiers played there. As far as population density, by 1969, I believe it was fairly dense, with mostly residential and along Rainier Avenue South, Industrial.

    Before Sicks was built, there was a ballpark at the site for many years. The name escapes me.

    www.historylink.org has some great stuff on Seattle History, with stories of Seattle neighborhoods, including Rainier Valley, Columbia City and The Mt. Baker district.

    Thanks Goose. Was Sick's surrounded by City when the Piots played there? It wasn't in an area like Chavez Ravine?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Dewey Soriano also play for the Rainiers?

    Quite an athletic looking group! Did Soriano ever reach 5' tall? Look at that manager! He looks like a sadistic disciplinarian!
