Moyer set to enter Mariners Hall of Fame

SEATTLE -- Jamie Moyer, who has won more games than any pitcher in Mariners history, will become the ninth inductee into the team's Hall of Fame prior to Saturday's 1:10 p.m. PT contest against the Rangers at Safeco Field.

The ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m. PT, and it can be seen live on and ROOT-TV. The first 20,000 fans at Saturday's game will receive a Moyer Hall of Fame bobblehead.

Moyer will join previous Mariners Hall of Fame inductees Alvin Davis, Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, Dan Wilson, Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey Jr., Lou Piniella and Dave Niehaus.

Davis, Buhner, Martinez, Wilson, Griffey and Piniella will all be present at the ceremony, as well as a Friday luncheon honoring Moyer at Safeco Field. Niehaus, who passed away in November 2010, will be represented by his wife, Marilyn. The only member not in attendance will be Johnson, who was just inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and is having his number retired Saturday in a ceremony by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
