Seattle, Wash. — Kevin Mather, the Seattle Mariners president, has resigned, according to a club release Thursday afternoon.

His announcement comes after a season in which the Mariners improved their record — though barely — from last year and played significantly better on the road than at home. The Mariners finished at .544 and .509 respectively, and registered a winning percentage of .439 at home but only .415 on the road.

On the year, they saw a significant increase in attendance — their 27th straight sellout — but MLB only calculates attendance based on home games. The Mariners have been selling out every home game since the season’s first day, something that’s never been done in Mariners history.

The team’s front office also fielded questions about the team’s dismissal of slugger Nelson Cruz and manager Scott Servais, among others.

Mariners announced in May that Mather would serve as both team president and director of baseball operations. He succeeded Jerry Dipoto, who was fired in early June following the team’s disappointing end to the 2015 season. He was promoted to president and director of baseball operations.

Mather began his career in baseball as a player with the Kansas City Royals and San Diego Padres from 1980-83 and rejoined the Royals as a coach in 1985. He went on to serve as San Diego’s general manager and then Detroit’s GM before heading to Seattle in 2010.
