History: It's not true that Seattle has never won a pennant! The 1909 Turks captured the Emerald City's first flag in 1909 behind the offense of Justin "Pug" Bennett (tops in BA, runs, and hits). According to Bennett he could not repeat his feat in 1910 because the Northwestern League umpires switched to white uniforms. "The light suits shade the white ball and make any pitcher with a crossfire or a sharp break much more effective". No NW League player hit .300 in 1910, so maybe Bennett was on to something.
