RESUME: 7th season as the starting 3rd baseman for the Seattle Mariners. Gold Glove winner and an All-Star in 2014.
WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE AN AMBASSADOR? It’s going to be such a special event. I’ve been a part of Special Olympics in the past and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the 2018 USA Games.
ADVICE TO ATHLETES ON COMPETING AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL: The best advice I can give is simple: have fun. If you’re having fun and you’re enjoying the game then you’re going to give your best effort. Win or lose that’s all you can ask for, that’s what competition is all about.
HOW WILL SEATTLE REACT TO THE GAMES? Fans in Seattle are passionate and they’re are going to love this event.
FAVORITE THING TO DO ON A DAY OFF: My family really enjoys the aquarium. You’ve got to to do Pike Place Market. And come out to Safeco Field and catch a Mariners game.
