The Seattle Rainmakers are proud to announce their first official player signing. Seth Wiggins will be joining the Rainmakers for their inaugural season and is looking forward to the opportunity to play in the MLU.
“This is a great time to be an Ultimate player,” says Wiggins. “I’m looking forward to matching up against the best players in the world on the most professional stage ever built for the sport.”
Seth Wiggins is a well-known name in Ultimate for good reason. He was a top Callahan Award contender in 2005, a Club National champion with Seattle Sockeye in 2007 and the captain of Rhino for two years in 2011-12. Even more significantly, he was one of six men chosen to represent the US at the 2009 World Games in Kaohsiung where the team won gold.
“We are excited to have Seth on board,” says Seattle GM Max Vitali. “He is a dynamic player and a great name in the sport. We know he will bring a lot to the team this season both as a player and a leader.”
The announcement is sure to have everyone looking forward to the Vancouver Nighthawks’ visit to Seattle on the season’s opening day. Those two cities are always close competitors when they meet, but the addition of Wiggins is sure to ask some questions of the Vancouver side.
