MLB: Surprise, Kyle Seager Announces Retirement From Baseball At 34

The work stoppage of MLB has prevented us from seeing player signatures or any other activity related to how changes and even the traditional winter gatherings. However, that does not prevent players from continuing to plan their future and surprisingly, one of the best third bases of the last decade has announced his retirement: This is Kyle Seager of the Seattle Mariners.

Through a statement issued by his wife through his Twitter account, Kyle Seager has announced that he is retiring as a Major League Baseball player after 11 seasons, all with the Seattle Mariners.

Today I announce my retirement from the Major Leagues. Thank you to my family, my friends, and the fans for supporting my career throughout the years. It has been a great journey and now I am excited for the next chapter in my life.

Seager had one of the best seasons of his career in 2021, hitting the most home runs and RBIs with 35 HR’s and 101 RBI’s. Unfortunately for him, he was never able to play in the playoffs and his numbers stood at 1,395 hits, 242 home runs, 807 RBIs, career .251 / .321 / .442 batting line and 36.9 WAR.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I’m going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds, and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
