Felix deal official

Fighting back tears while his hands trembled, Felix Hernandez signed a seven-year, $175 million contract with the Seattle Mariners that makes him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball.

Hernandez was greeted by front-office staff wearing “King’s Court” T-shirts, referring to a special section of the stadium for all of his starts. He immediately got choked up, repeatedly saying, “I will not disappoint anybody.”

General manager Jack Zduriencik said Hernandez got a “clear bill of health” from Mariners physicians.
