A note from @alstonpaxton: Thank you so much to the Seattle Mariners for an amazing 8 years. It has been a great ride for me and many things have happened here that I will never forget. From my MLB debut, to an eagle on my shoulder, and even a no hitter. The teammates that I’ve had over my years in Seattle have been nothing but the best and I will cherish the friendships that have been created. To my many coaches that have helped mold me into the pitcher that I am today, I can’t thank you enough, and you know who you are. To the fans, I am extremely lucky to have had such great support as a Mariner from day 1. I was welcomed right away and the support never ended. Special thanks to the Maple Grove for your enthusiastic cheering that made my games so much fun. I will miss you all.
