ARLINGTON (AP) Former Seattle Mariners general manager and longtime Texas Rangers executive Hal Keller has died. He was 84.

The Rangers say Keller died in his sleep at his home in Sequim, Wash., early Tuesday. He was being treated for esophageal cancer.

Keller played 25 games with Washington from 1949-52. He spent most of his baseball career in scouting and front office roles.

Keller was farm director of the expansion Washington Senators from 1961-62 and 1965-71, then held the same role from 1972-78 after the team moved to Texas and became the Rangers. He joined Seattle’s front office from 1979-85, first as director of player development and then general manager for three years.
