Kevin Mather Net Worth: Kevin Mather is former President and Chief Executive Officer of Seattle Mariners. He resigned as President and CEO of the sailors on 22 February 2021, after controverse remarks at a Rotary Club event on 5 February. John Stanton, Marines Chairman and Managing Partner, issued a statement saying that “Like you all, I was deeply disappointed when I heard Kevin Mather’s words and comments. His observations have been inadequate and do not reflect our company’s feelings towards our players, staff and fans.
For instance, we just hired Iwakuma again, he was a pitcher with us for many years. He had a terrible English, a great person. He wanted to get back into the game, he came to us, because we really want him, as our Asian scout, an interpreter.
In spring he gets to work out. And I’m going to say, I’m tired of paying the interpreter. When he was a player we’d pay Iwakuma X, but we’d also have to pay $75,000 a year to have an interpreter with him. Suddenly, when we told him that his English was better, his English got better.
