In the first series after the All-Star Break, the Seattle Mariners were in Houston taking on the Astros when Mariner’s third baseman Kyle Seager lost control of his bat on a swing and ended up tossing it into the stands. Seager’s bat landed on a young Astros fan named Lyle Raymond who was unharmed by the incident, but is foregoing his option to keep the bat as a souvenir, and is instead offering to return it to its owner for some pretty great reasons. Seager, who had been riding a 15-game hitting streak until that night, received a heartfelt letter from the young fan which his wife Julie shared on Twitter. Check out the letter below that reads: My name is Lyle Raymond, Your bat landed on me. I am OK. Thanks for giving me the thumbs up when you were on first base. I like the Astros but will cheer you on too. I gave back your bat because you had a big hitting streak with that bat. I hope you have more with that bat. Your fan, Lyle Kyle just got the sweetest letter in the mail from the little boy who got hit by his bat in Houston. http://t.co/iqzShRC8I8— Julie Seager (@JulieSeager15) August 02, 2013   Filed under: Anna Fogel, Headlines, MLB, NESN Nation
