OK, it was batting practice, but it still made Ackley feel good. “That first swing, I didn’t know where the ball was going to go or if I was even going to hit it,” he said with a laugh after taking a round of BP before Monday’s Mariners game. “It was a relief.” Ackley was in Seattle to officially sign his five-year major-league deal with the Mariners, worth at least $7.5 million. As part of the day, Ackley donned a Mariners uniform (No. 13, his college number at North Carolina), held a news conference and schmoozed nervously in the clubhouse with current Mariners.
