To give you a taste of what his day looked like, ROOT SPORTS followed him around Safeco Field to document the big day. Cano had time to sit down for interviews with Rick Rizzs, Brad Adam of ROOT SPORTS, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle, Pedro Gomez and Enrique Rojas of ESPN and MLB Network before being formally introduced to the Seattle media.
Once that was done, he finished his day with a photo shoot in his new Mariners gear and spent time with Mariners fans at Safeco Field. Enjoy the glimpse behind the scenes!
