Did you know that on April 7, 1986, Spike Owen was named the first (and to date) the only team captain of the Seattle Mariners ? Manager Chuck Cottier said Spike, "wants to play bad and he wants to win worse" in the Spokane Chronicle article (AP, 04/08/1986, 'M's Name Owen Captain', Sports: Page 11) pictured below:
Spike Owen Seattle Mariners Team Captain

Spike Owen was traded to the Boston Red Sox on August 19, 1986, a bit over four months after having been named the Mariners ' captain. On August 21, 1986 , in his third BoSox game, Spike tied the Major League record for runs scored in a game with six, only the second American League player ( Johnny Pesky , May 8, 1946 , was the first) in history at the time.

In 1999, Rey Ordonez played one-hundred consecutive games at shortstop setting a new record for errorless games at shortstop . The mark he broke was set by Spike Owen, who had sixty-three consecutive errorless games at shortstop during the 1990 regular season.
