Hello, my name is: Patrick Kivlehan, Mariners outfield prospect

We’re introducing some of the Mariners’ offseason additions and lesser-known players during spring training. Here’s a look at Patrick Kivlehan.

Position: First base/Third base/outfield
Height/weight/age: 6-2/215/25
Hometown: Nyack, N.Y.
How acquired: Chosen in the fourth round (131st overall) in the 2012 draft by Seattle.

His best baseball memory: For Kivlehan, the time that sticks out in his mind is his fun-loving 16-year-old summer league team. “We had no expectations of like winning any titles or anything like that and kind of just had a good group of guys,” he said. “We were just laid back and we just had fun and we just won … We ended up winning the state tournament.”

Favorite after-game treat as a kid: “Definitely ice cream,” Kivlehan said. “We’d always go to this place called the Cone Zone or whatever and I always got vanilla ice cream with rainbow sprinkles.”

Most memorable baseball game before the pros: Back in his days at Rutgers, where Kivlehan played both baseball and football, he had a breakout performance in a losing effort that opened some eyes. “Against Georgetown, I had four hits and I had like the game-tying home run in the ninth and the go-ahead home run in the 11th – and we ended up losing,” he said. “”It was kind of like my coming-out game that I kind of established myself that I can actually play.”

Favorite meal made by his mom: In a surprisingly healthy pick, it’s turkey meatloaf for Kivlehan. He likes it so much that in the limited time he gets to spend at home in the offseason, she makes it two or threes a week. “Me and my brother just devour it,” he said.

Favorite cartoon as a kid: Recess.

Favorite restaurant on the road: Texas Roadhouse. “I’ll get a steak, but I just love those rolls with the cinnamon butter. I could eat just baskets of those.”

Pet: A collie/golden retriever mix named Callie.

Favorite vacation spot: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. “I went there a couple years back with my fiancée and it was a lot of fun.”
