Wakamatsu issues statement

Don Wakamatsu just issued the following statement through the Mariners’ public relations department:
“I would like to thank the city of Seattle and all the baseball fans here in the Northwest for the great support offered to me during my time as Mariners manager.
“My single biggest disappointment is that we were not able to finish what we wanted to finish here, bringing a championship club to the fans.
“I can not tell you how great the fans were to me, and to my family. The support I received here will always mean a great deal to me.”
Wakamatsu relayed that he will conduct a conference call tomorrow afternoon once he’s had a chance to digest everything.
