The following is a list of Seattle Mariners uniform promotion games. The games are often known as the "Turn Back the Clock Night" where they donthrowback uniforms. The Mariners have played games in promotional uniforms since the 1993 season, excluding 1997, and 2000–2004. In 1994, the Mariners played the Oakland Athletics in a promotion titled "Salute to the [Seattle] Rainiers" where the two teams donned 1955 Pacific Coast League uniforms.[1] In 1995, the Mariners wore uniforms from the Seattle Steelheads, a short-lived Negro league baseball team based in Seattle, Washington.[2] Although not a "throwback", the Mariners have played two games in futuristic styled uniforms on a promotion night titled, "Turn Ahead the Clock".[3] The "Turn Ahead the Clock" game was originated by the Mariners promotional staff in 1998, and in 1999 the promotion was picked up by 19 other Major League Baseball (MLB) franchises.[3] Outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. helped design the original 1998 uniforms.[3] Although the league-wide promotion has been criticized, the original Mariners' promotion proved successful.[3] In all, the Mariners have played 13 uniform promotion games. Their all-time record is seven wins, and six losses. The Mariners have played the Kansas City Royals three times, including their first jersey promotion game on May 21, 1993. The Mariners have also played the Oakland Athletics (three times), the Milwaukee Brewers (twice), the Minnesota Twins (once), the San Diego Padres (three times), the Detroit Tigers (once), the Cleveland Indians (once), and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (once). The Mariners have played eight uniform promotion games at home, and six away.
