After spending his baseball lifetime with the Dodgers, shortstop Corey Seager is taking his talents to Arlington, Texas. The former NL rookie of the year took to social media to share his gratitude for his time in Los Angeles.
In his introductory press conference with the Rangers, Seager struggled with nerves while trying to talk about his time with the Dodgers and finally reaching the ultimate goal in 2020.
Peeps are really questioning Seager's farewell message to LA? He already talked about how bringing a title back to LA was a huge "accomplimesh"?. If Seags doesn't go full GOD Mode in 2020, the Dodgers WS drought is still going, so he can do no wrong to me.pic.twitter.com/uYlH5GhxyX

He expanded on his appreciation for LA in an interview on MLB Network soon after.
I can’t thank the Dodgers enough for what they’ve done for me. What I’ve been able to do for the city and bringing a championship back to them and all the teammates that went along with that. The relationships that we built throughout the years there. And the fanbase alone… it’s truly humbling and we’ve appreciated every moment that they’ve given to us.
The Dodgers put out a short video that tugged on the heartstrings of fans while showing Seager’s growth from a first round draft pick to a World Series MVP.
