Mariners Writer Promotes New Book



A longtime writer for the Seattle Mariners makes a stop in Yakima yesterday to promote his new book

Jon wells has been writing for the Seattle Mariners for over 18 years -- wells recently published a book titled Shipwrecked: A People's History of the Seattle Mariners.

Wells is touring across the state, promoting his book.

In shipwrecked, well's makes the argument that the team has suffered from success during the baseball season due to the management.

"You know, it wasn't just a string of bad luck that has the Mariners as one of the only teams never to make the world series," said Wells, "It's all by design, because they've chosen to make money over having a winning team."

Wells says he will make his last stop in spokane later this week.
