In 2012, he led the Mariners in Batting Average and on base percentage Career highs in HR, RBI’s and OBP (394). John was a valuable member of the Mariners who when not catching also was the DH for the club. He also, as many of you should know caught the first perfect game in Seattle Mariner history….

In just his second full season in the big leagues, Barney led all major league second basemen with a .997 fielding percentage this season, committing only two errors in 731 total chances covering 1,270.1 innings. Barney tied the single-season major league record by playing 141-consecutive games at second base without an error, first done by Detroit’s Placido Polanco in 2007.
