On This Date: Jay Buhner Becomes the First Mariner To Ever Hit For the Cycle [VIDEO]

For long-time Mariners fans, this may seem hard to believe.

On this date, 24 years ago, Jay Buhner became the very first Seattle Mariners to collect a single, double, triple and home run – aka “The Cycle” or “The Circuit” – in club history.

While it took extra innings in a game in the now demolished Kingdome against the Oakland A’s, Buhner completed the task saving the toughest hit, the three-bagger, for last.

“The Bone”, as Buhner was affectionately nicknamed, was not known for his blazing speed on the basepaths but his deep fly ball to right field caromed off of the top of the 23-foot wall and rolled briskly away from the outfielders on the slick artificial grass allowing him to stretch a double into a triple.

Buhner has often said in later years that he felt as if someone had thrown a piano on to his back as he circled second base. Watch the video below and you will see how quickly his sprint turned into labored desperation!
