SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners will honor former pitcher Randy Johnson and catcher Dan Wilson by inducting the pair into the team’s hall of fame in July.

The Mariners made the announcement Tuesday. The duo will be honored before the Mariners face the Kansas City Royals on July 28.

Wilson played 12 of his 14 major league seasons for the Mariners and caught a franchise-record 1,281 games and was an All-Star in 1996.

Johnson pitched for Seattle from 1989-1998, winning the Cy Young Award with the Mariners in 1995 when the team won its first AL West title. He was a five-time All-Star in his tenure with the Mariners.

The duo will become the fifth and sixth members of the team’s hall of fame, joining Alvin Davis, Dave Niehaus, Jay Buhner and Edgar Martinez.

    Randy Johnson was in the thick of things in ’95. Great memories of both him and Wilson.
