Founded by Pudgie Walsh

Catherine and Pudgie was a true team. If not for Catherine there would never have been the Mariners because there never would have been Pudgie for all these years. She was his inspiration. She gave him his passion. She allowed him to be him because he knew she always had his back. “Pudgie also knew that if he got out of line she was always there to put him back in his place. I also want to say to Erin and John that your mom was a great lady and thank the Lord for the time he allowed us all to be a part of her life. RIP, Catherine.”

Rest In Peace "Mrs. Mariner",... 2015 Season is for you, Pride, Honor, Respect......
