Kevin Mather

President & CEO Seattle Mariners

“Edgar’s Induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame”

Introduced by: Bob Holert

Today Kevin Mather, President and CEO of the Mariners, will discuss Edgar’s just reward! In addition, Kevin will be willing to answer your questions on Edgar, his induction into the MLB Hall of Fame and the current state of the Mariners.

“Edgar elected into HOF in final year of eligibility – DH receives 85.4 percent of votes, joins Griffey Jr. as only players with Mariners caps on plaques in Cooperstown”.

On January 22, 2019, it was announced Edgar Martinez was voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. For Edgar, patience once again had paid off. And this time, the reward is a plaque in Cooperstown. It took 10 long years of waiting, a decade of wondering, but one of the greatest designated hitters to play the game is headed at last to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

The entire 2019 Hall of Fame class was honored as part of the induction weekend July 20 and 21st  in Cooperstown, New York, with the actual Induction Ceremony on July 21.

Following Edgar’s induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in July, the team will celebrate  ‘Edgar Martinez Hall of Fame’ weekend August 9-11.
