One of the Major League Baseball outfielders with the Seattle Mariners baseball team is Mitch Haniger. Archbishop Mitty High School, a member of the West Catholic Athletic League, is where Haniger attended high school in San Jose, California.
Haniger was chosen by the New York Mets in the 31st round of the MLB Draft in 2009, but he declined to sign a contract with them. Instead, he opted to enrol at Cal Poly and play for the Mustangs there. Haniger was picked in the 2012 MLB Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers.
A $1.2 million signing bonus was given to him when he joined them. Haniger was sent to the Brewers’ Class A Midwest League affiliate, the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, in Appleton, Wisconsin, after signing with the team. There, he played in 14 games. Before being promoted to the Brevard County Manatees of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League, he spent the first half of the 2013 season with Wisconsin.
He was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks by the Brewers in July 2014. On August 16, 2016, he was called up to the big leagues by the Diamondbacks, and that same day, he played his first MLB game. He was acquired by the Seattle Mariners in a trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks in November 2016 and has since played for them.
