Born on April Fools Day, 1962, Amaral didn't reach the major leagues until the age of 29 with the Mariners in 1991. Amaral played every position but catcher and pitcher as a Mariner, staying through the 1998 season as the team's main utility player. During that time, he had 397 hits, 11 HR, 142 RBI and 97 SB as a Mariner. His best season came in 1996, when at the age of 34 he hit .292 with 25 steals while playing seven different positions.
Tinsley got his major league debut with the Mariners in 1993, left to Boston after the season and returned in 1997 for a second go-around with the club. A former first-round pick (11th overall) by Oakland in 1987, Tinsley had 27 hits as a Mariner and was known mostly for his defensive abilities in the outfield.
