Mariners Broadcaster Mike Blowers Makes Greatest MLB Prediction of All Time

10 OCT 1995:  SEATTLE MARINERS THIRD BASEMAN MIKE BLOWERS HITS A TWO-RUN HOMER IN THE SECOND INNING OF THE MARINERS GAME VERSUS THE CLEVELAND INDIANS IN GAME ONE OF THE AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES AT THE KINGDOME IN SEATTLE, WASHINGTON.  SEATTLE W

At one time or another, we’ve all made some outlandish predictions in life. If you’re a baseball fan, chances are you may have made a few more crazy prognostications than the average human being.

Trying to forecast an at-bat or a certain play can keep a slow baseball game going. So-and-so is going to hit into a double play; John Doe is going to strike out; Joe Blow will pop this one up. Stuff like that.

I’m just going to go out on a limb here and say that no one—and I mean NO ONE—has ever correctly made a baseball prediction as insane as the one Mariners color commentator Mike Blowers made on Sunday afternoon.

Blowers, the team’s former third baseman, was participating in a pregame segment called “Picks to Click” when he was asked which Mariners player would end up having a big day.

Blowers went with M’s infielder Matt Tuiasosopo, then went so far as to predict Tui’s first big league home run, the count that the home run would be hit on (3-1), the pitcher that the home run would be hit off of (Blue Jays starter Brian Tallet), the at-bat that the home run would be hit in (second), the pitch that the home run would come off of (fastball), and the location of the home run (left-center field).

Everything came true, exactly as projected by Blowers.

All of which leads me to believe that Blowers is some sort of witch, warlock, wizard, mind freak, whatever you want to call it. This is truly unbelievable.
