Mike Marjama, NEDA Ambassador

As the 2018 Opening Day Starting Catcher for the Seattle Mariners, Mike Marjama’s mid-season retirement and decision to accept a role as Ambassador for the National Eating Disorder Association are both remarkable and inspiring. Struggles with eating disorders first surfaced for Mike in 7th grade, culminating in hospitalization and inpatient treatment during his Junior year of high school. Mike Marjama’s recovery led him on an amazing journey playing baseball around the country, eventually making his Major League debut at the age of 28 in September of 2017. This past winter, Lebron James’ Uninterrupted produced and filmed the mini-documentary “Marj”, detailing Mike Marjama’s story, which premiered exclusively on ABC’s Good Morning America on the Eve of MLB’s Opening Day. Recently retired, Mike is passionate about speaking openly about his struggles to inspire others, especially men and boys, to seek the help and support they deserve.
