The face of the Mariners, Kyle Lewis, is capable of leading Wa(shington) as the Black Panther

There is no doubt that the Mariners’ centerfielder is the new face of the franchise. Kyle Lewis was the first draft pick made by Jerry Dipoto after starting his role with the Mariners as general manager. Lewis was the start of a new beginning for the Mariners organization and it starting to pay dividends.

As one of the Rookie of the Year Award finalists for 2020, Lewis has proven to Mariners fans that he is not a bust like the Mariners have had in the past. As the Mariners leader, Lewis is my favorite for the Black Panther character. The Black Panther was played by the late Chadwick Boseman who passed away in September and represented a monumental superhero in the world.

The Black Panther is the King of Wakanda, and T’Challa’s super abilities are strength, speed, agility, and senses. Lewis is an extremely well-rounded player that has a little bit of everything just like T’Challa. Lewis hit extremely well as a rookie and made multiple clutch defensive plays like his grand slam robbery.
