MLB’s Mariners president set to retire

Major League Baseball (MLB)’s Seattle Mariners president Chuck Armstrong has revealed that he will retire on January 31.

Armstrong has been president of the Mariners for 28 of the franchise's 37 seasons in MLB. A search for the 71-year-old’s replacement has already begun.

He said: “Thirty years ago, my family and I were given a wonderful opportunity to move to the Seattle area and become associated with the Seattle Mariners. We quickly grew to love this community and this team.

“Through all the good times and the not-so-good times on the field since 1984, the goal always has been to win the World Series. My only regret is that the entire region wasn't able to enjoy a parade through the city to celebrate a world championship together.”
