#25 Jose Vidal, Outfield/ John Gelnar, Pitcher

Another in the many numbers that saw multiple players due to roster changes. #25 was first donned by Jose Vidal at the beginning of the season. Jose would be traded in early June to the Yankees for Dick Simpson. Jose lost a battle with cancer on January 7 of 2011.

The second Pilot to wear #25 was John Gelnar. John would pitch in the second half of the season. His biggest claim to fame in Seattle is that he was traded with Steve Whitaker from the Royals for a prospect named Lou Piniella. I think we all know how that trade worked out.
