Behind-the-scenes with the Mariners (video)

Tom Reardon has been the man you must go through to reach the Seattle Mariners clubhouse for the past 10 years, which means he's opened the door for everyone from Lou Piniella to Chone Figgins.

Along the way, he's gotten to know most of the men who live in that clubhouse, and he's got enough stories to write a book - which Norm Charlton once told him wasn't allowed.

Tom takes five minutes, however, to share three behind-the-scenes stories of Mariners you know, and though they may not surprise you, they'll give you another view of the men we follow. Enjoy.
