Tip of the Cap to a Great Career Cammy
The Seattle Mariners would like to salute Mike Cameron on a wonderful 17-year Major League career and thank him for helping make so many memories in his four years in a Mariners uniform. Cameron announced his retirement from baseball today.
From 2000 to 2003, there was a four-year stretch at Safeco Field where not many balls found the turf in center field. Cameron wowed the Mariners faithful with his numerous home run saving catches and his passion for the game. In addition to being a team leader, Cameron was a winner, helping lead Seattle to a 393-255 record (.606 winning percentage) during his tenure in Seattle.
As a Mariner he was an All-Star in 2001, won a pair of gold gloves and set the single-game home run record with four longballs May 2, 2002 at Chicago (AL). He hit .256 with 115 doubles, 19 triples, 87 home runs and 344 RBI in 610 games with the Mariners.
Here are a two of his many highlights during his illustrious playing career (click on photos for video highlights):
Thanks for the memories Cammy!
