Seattle catcher Cal Raleigh apologized to his teammates and coaches on Sunday for his strong comments about the team's commitment to winning after the Mariners were eliminated from postseason contention.
Raleigh spoke for about 90 seconds and did not take questions, a day after Seattle lost to Texas and was eliminated from postseason contention.
"Obviously yesterday was a really emotional day for everybody. I just want to apologize to my teammates, my coaches, fans. It wasn't a time to talk about what-ifs in that scenario," Raleigh said. "That being said, I'm not going to apologize for wanting to win and wanting to bring a World Series to the city. They deserve it, the fans do and our organization does and I'm committed to doing that."
