The Pulaski Mariners are a minor league baseball team based in Pulaski, Virginia, United States. They are an Advanced Rookie League team in the Appalachian League, and a farm team of the Seattle Mariners. The team plays its home games at Calfee Park. They have previously been affiliated with several other major league baseball teams, most recently the Toronto Blue Jays. That affiliation ended after the 2006 season and with no major league parent to supply players the team suspended operations for one season. On Sunday, Aug. 29, Appalachian League President Lee Landers announced that the club would return with a two-year deal with the Seattle Mariners.

Pulaski baseball history[edit]

Pulaski's teams won the Appalachian League's championship in 1948, 1969, 1986, and 1991.

Pulaski was the 2010 Appalachian League Eastern Division Champion.

The Pulaski Mariners play at Calfee Park. Calfee Park opened in 1935 and has a capacity of 2,500 fans. A number of houses that surround the park have good views of games. The director of stadium operations is Dave Hart and the head groundskeeper is Gary Martin.

The park had major renovations prior to the 1999 season, with a new grandstand behind the plate and along the first-base side as well as "open-air suites" (railed-in areas with picnic tables) farther down on the first-base line. A new scoreboard was also installed.
