Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager will be featured on MLB Network’s kids-focused “Play Ball” on Saturday at 7 a.m. The program will re-air at 1:30 p.m.
“Play Ball” is a weekly player interview and demonstration show for kids. The program features MLB stars reminiscing about reaching the Majors, providing advice to kids trying to get better at the game, and sharing tips in one-on-one demonstrations with MLB Network analysts.
The show is hosted by former Mariners’ second baseman and MLBN announcer Harold Reynolds.
Seager’s advice to the kids? “It’s a game,” the third baseman said. “If you’re not having fun, you’re not gonna work as hard as you should. If you’re not working hard, it’s not gonna work for you.”
Seager related several stories about growing up with brother Corey Seager, the Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star shortstop.
“He got me good one time when we were younger. We were actually at one of (another brother) Justin’s games and me and Corey were playing in the outfield just throwing or something like that. I think Justin was hitting and I turned to look, and [Corey] just drilled me right in the side of the head. Knocked me out, I was done. He threw pretty hard back then too, so he’s always been pretty good.”
Here’s a short snippet from the program.
