Griffin Klett : @G_Klett
Author @ Pro Ball NW Since October 6, 2012

I'm an avid Seattle sports fan, and have loved both the Seahawks and Mariners my whole life--as well as the former Supersonics. I root for WSU and especially enjoy watching Cougar basketball, though any college basketball will do.

Outside of sports, I enjoy boating in the San Juans, one of the most beautiful places on earth, and reading anything from Malcolm Gladwell, my favorite author.

I wrote at ESPN Sweetspot's Marlins Daily for over a year before joining the team at Pro Ball NW, where I could write about my local team.

With the Mariners season now long past, it's time to look ahead to the future for the organization, starting with Kyle Seager and third base. Seager's performance in 2012 was a pleasant surprise as he outshined more heralded young teammates Dustin Ackley and Jesus Montero, and finished the campaign as…
