Player O The Week: Jim Beattie 1981

To break this season’s curse I think the Mariners need to bring back the 1980′ s button-up
Once you check out this 1981 Jim Beattie card from Topps, you’ll see what I mean.
With that said, Jim Beattie is our Vintage Seattle Player O The Week.
In ’82 he pitched 19 consecutive scoreless innings and threw the first M’s one hitter in ’83. After hanging up the shiny jacket, Beattie went on to serve as Director of Player Development for the Mariners (1990-1995), was GM of the Expos (1995-2001), and acted as Executive VP of the Baltimore Orioles (2003-2005). Not bad for an ex-jock with a University of Washington M.B.A.
