Rich Amaral vs. Lee Tinsley

Place your votes now as we look to solve, once and for all, who in fact is the Mariners' best left fielder of all time. Lets take a look at the top candidates from the 1990's.

Rich Amaral
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.

Lee Tinsley
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.
