Tonight’s interview is with Sounds hitting coach Webster Garrison, who played for the Tacoma Tigers from ’91-’93 when he was in the A’s system. The Tigers were an A’s farm team from ’81-’94 before becoming the Rainers and a Mariners affiliate in ’95. Garrison shares some memories of playing in Tacoma and a hot-hitting Sounds offense that owns a .295 team average in August, including his thoughts on Joey Wendle, Jason Pridie, Ryan Roberts, Rangel Ravelo and Carson Blair.
