Just another heads up, Mariners Social Media Night is coming up Wednesday and if you are into Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest or would just like to learn more about them, the Mariners have a great deal going.

For just $11 you will receive a ticket to that night’s game against Toronto, a #Mariners T-shirt and an invitation to a pregame event where Shawn Kelley, Lucas Luetge, Charlie Furbush, Dave Sims, me (that’s @shannondrayer) and others are scheduled to appear to talk Mariners baseball and social media. For event and ticket information click here.

Just for fun for “Beyond the Baselines” today I talked to several Mariners about Twitter. Find out which Mariner claims he invented Twitter, how a Mariner revealed to the world he watched “The Bachelorette” on Twitter and which Mariner others would most like to see on Twitter by clicking here.
