Today we go back in time again to meet a former Mariner. Our player today was a fringe player before coming to the Mariners, but became an everyday player. After attending Joliet HS and Murray State University, Jack Perconte was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 16th round of the 1976 draft. While working his way through the minors, Jack would see time with the club in 1980 and 1981. For his time spent on the roster in 1981, he would earn a World Series ring. After the 1981 season, the Dodgers would trade Jack to the Cleveland Indians.
