The Seattle Mariners third basemen, Kyle Seager, is doing what he does best, keep out of the spotlight and produce. Seager is in the midst of a career year. After going 3-5 with two doubles in Sunday’s win over the Texas Rangers, he is slashing .276/.334/.462. The two doubles push his season total to 35, which ties his career high from 2012. Seager currently sits at 24 home runs which is one shy of his career high of 25 from a year ago. He has scored 79 runs on the year tieing his career high set in 2013. All of this comes with 12 games left on the M’s 2015 schedule.
The season is all but over for the Mariners and Seager, but one thing remains a major goal for the University of North Carolina product over the next 12 games, get as many hits as he can. Kyle and his wife, Julie, teamed up this past off-season with the Vs. Cancer Foundation to raise money for each hit he collects. The Vs. Cancer Foundation was founded by a former teammate of Kyle’s at UNC, Chase Jones, to help fight childhood cancer. Jones is a brain cancer survivor. You can read more about this wonderful foundation here. Seager currently has 153 pledgers donating $243.29 per hit. Seager and his pledgers have currently donated north of $40,000 that will go to help fund cancer research.
While the Mariners may be out of the hunt for October this year, Kyle Seager still has a lot to play for.
