Mariners' Kyle Seager overcame open-heart surgery as infant

Kyle Seager didn't plan on opening up to a complete stranger about a part of his life he'd kept largely to himself. The Mariners third baseman once wore T-shirts to the beach to hide the scar from the open heart surgery he'd had as a 5-month-old infant. He rarely volunteered information on it other than at checkups or when undergoing medical tests. (Seattle Times)
