Dan Wilson played 12 of his 14 Major League seasons for the Mariners (1994-2005), catching more innings than any other player in Mariners history (1,281). He was a member of every Mariners team to have reached the playoffs. His combination of statistical achievement, leadership on the field and commitment to the Seattle community make him a worthy member of the Mariners Hall of Fame.

Wilson represented the Mariners on the 1996 American League All-Star team. He owns the Mariners career records for home runs by a catcher (including two inside-the-park home runs), and the Club's single season records for catchers in RBI (83, 1996). Wilson ended his career with a .995 fielding percentage, at the time the highest for any catcher in American League history, and the sixth highest in Major League history.
