Mariners Third Baseman Kyle Seager Receives Touching Letter From Young Astros Fan Hit by His Bat

1,594

In the first series after the All-Star Break, the Seattle Mariners were in Houston taking on the Astros when Mariner’s third baseman Kyle Seager lost control of his bat on a swing and ended up tossing it into the stands.

Seager’s bat landed on a young Astros fan named Lyle Raymond who was unharmed by the incident, but is foregoing his option to keep the bat as a souvenir, and is instead offering to return it to its owner for some pretty great reasons.

Seager, who had been riding a 15-game hitting streak until that night, received a heartfelt letter from the young fan which Seager’s wife Julie shared on Twitter.

Check out the letter below that reads:

My name is Lyle Raymond, Your bat landed on me. I am OK. Thanks for giving me the thumbs up when you were on first base. I like the Astros but will cheer you on too. I gave back your bat because you had a big hitting streak with that bat. I hope you have more with that bat.

Your fan,

Lyle
