Spencer Hawes claims 'tallest Mariners pitcher' record

Move over, Randy Johnson.

Seattle native, former University of Washington center and 7-foot-1 human Spencer Hawes tossed out the ceremonial first pitch before Wednesday's game at Safeco Field.

A Mariners fan since the days of Buhner Buzz Night, Hawes was on hand to help promote Jamal Crawford's A-Plus Charity Hoops Game in Spokane.
