Long time Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager is retiring from baseball after an 11-year career, his wife shared to Twitter. A career .251 hitter with 242 total homers that slugged 35 long balls just last year.
With the crowd that is this lock out, all the covid hysteria and the 10-year service time under his belt, now was the time to head off into the sunset.

“Today I’m announcing my retirement from Major League Baseball. Thank you to all my family, friends, and fans for following me throughout my career. It’s been a wonderful ride but I am unbelievably excited for the next chapter of my life,” Kyle Seager wrote.
We’d be stoked too if we made $100 million and were able to retire to have more time for our hobbies at 34. He’s earned everything having been a reliable figure in that Mariners clubhouse, so now he’s exiting the game following a strong year and we couldn’t be happier for the guy. No one expected Buster Posey to retire either, so perhaps players are giving fans a sneak peek as to the headache this lock out may be behind the scenes?
And last but not least, a bunch of awesome highlights of Kyle Seager to celebrate his career, and we know if he ever runs out of money, he can always ask his brother Corey, who just signed a 10-year, $325 million deal with the Texas Rangers. There’s no Hall of Fame in his future — still a brilliant career.
Kyle Seager's final game was an emotional one 🙏
