Former Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke has always been famous for being a little bit different than most ballplayers. On Saturday, Greinke added another chapter to that book.

Zack and Emily Greinke took their two children to the Astros/Mariners game in Seattle on Saturday, sitting through all 18 innings in Houston’s series-clinching 1-0 win over the Mariners.
After Greinke spent two and a half years with the Astros, you might think he was there to root for his old teammates, but you’d be wrong. Emily and the kids were decked out in Mariners gear to support their “best friends,” Robbie and Taylor Ray. The Greinke kids wore Robbie Ray shirts and Mariners hats, with Emily sporting a Mariners shirt.
Zack? He wore a Bass Pro Shops hoodie and a bucket hat, and he apparently made it through the entire 382 minutes without anyone recognizing him. Which, if you know much about Greinke, sounds like the perfect day for him.
Greinke and Ray were teammates with the Diamondbacks from 2016 until Greinke was traded to Houston in 2019. In 2017, they had their best year together, with both pitchers finishing in the top seven in Cy Young voting and the DBacks reaching the NLDS, where they were swept by the Dodgers.
Greinke spent three seasons in Los Angeles, finishing in the top eight in Cy Young voting all three years. He left after 2015 to sign a six-year deal with Arizona.
Zack spent the 2022 season back in Kansas City, where he started his career and won his only Cy Young Award in 2009. He will be 39 later this month, and he hasn’t yet said what his plans are for next season.
