Kevin Mather Salary: Kevin Mather is Seattle Mariners’ former Chairman and CEO. On 22 February 2021, after controversial remarks during an event organized by Rotary Club on 5 February, he resigned as President and CEO of the mariners. John Stanton, Chair of the Marines and Managing Partner, published a statement reading: “Like you all, when I heard about the words and comments of Kevin Mather, I was deeply disappointed. His remarks were unsuitable and do not reflect the feelings of our company towards our players, employees and fans.
We just re-hired Iwakuma, for example, for many years, he was with us a pitcher. His English was horrible, a great human being. He wanted to get back into the game, he came to us, as our Asian scout, an interpreter, we really want him. He comes to training in the spring.
And I’ll say, I’m tired to pay the interpreter. We would be paying Iwakuma X when he was a player, but we would also have to pay 75,000 dollars a year to have an interpreter with him. Suddenly, his English got better, when we told him that, his English got better!
