The Moose stole the show, as he's apt to do. The message from the professional ballplayers was important too, but it played second fiddle to the dancing rack of antlers, who worked the 280 students at Borah Elementary School into a borderline frenzy as part of the Seattle Mariners D.R.E.A.M. Team caravan tour that stopped in Coeur d'Alene Thursday to promote positive thinking and healthy living.“He always does,” said Sean Grindley, M's community program manager, on the Moose's ability to grab the limelight by high-fiving, dancing and shooting confetti across the gym. “It doesn't matter what players we bring.” Yeah, there were baseball players/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Which Mariners players have you met?
