The Seattle Mariners 1985 season was their ninth since the franchise creation. They finished sixth in the American League West with a record of 74–88 (.457).

Regular season[edit]

  • July 9: Against the Toronto Blue Jays at the Kingdome in Seattle, Jays catcher Buck Martinez executed a double play by tagging out two runners at home plate. In the third inning, Phil Bradley was on second when Gorman Thomas singled. Bradley was tagged out at home, on a throw from Jesse Barfield to Martinez with a collision in which Martinez broke his ankle; he was sitting on the ground in agony and threw the ball to third base in an attempt to tag out Thomas. The throw went into left field and Thomas continued running; left fielder George Bell threw the ball back to Martinez, still seated on the ground in pain, who tagged Thomas out.[1]
