Daz Cameron had a moment he will never forget before a game last week against the Seattle Mariners.

On Thursday, June 6, Cameron was informed that he would deliver the lineup card to the umpires before the game.



But little did he know, he would be greeted by a special person. When Cameron went to home plate to deliver the lineup card, he saw his father, Mike Cameron, standing on the Mariners sideline.


“That’s how I found out,” Daz said, after learning his father was a member of Seattle’s coaching staff. “To see him at home plate in a big league stadium, it was inspiring. It’s something that I won’t forget. It was special for me.”


His father played 17 seasons in the league and during that time he was named an All-Star and won three Gold Glove awards. He is currently on the Mariners staff serving in a coaching capacity.



“Nothing beats an actual regular-season big league game,” Cameron said. “To see him on the field, shake his hand and talk to him for a little bit before the game and exchange cards, that was cool to do.”


It’s not often you get a chance to see a father and son share a moment like that, especially on a professional level.


“It was a casual talk,” he said. “After we exchanged cards, we said good luck to each other. The umpires were standing around just laughing.”

Cameron made his season debut with the A’s back in May and in his first big league game since 2022, he put together an impressive performance.


He went 2-for-5 at the plate against the Colorado Rockies with a home run and two runs scored.


Not bad for your first game with your new team. That’s how you say I’m here to stay and help make an impact on this team.


He can provide a lot of value to the team both at the plate and in the field. The 27-year-old can play any position in the outfield and can track down balls with the best of them. And at the plate he can hit for average and has some pop in his bat as well.

Cameron is no stranger to the big leagues either. From 2020 to 2022 he suited up for the Detroit Tigers appearing in over 70 games during that time.

Before joining the A’s this season, he put up some impressive numbers in the minors. During his time with Triple-A affiliate, Las Vegas Aviators, he appeared in 41 games and hit .307 with six home runs and 27 RBI.


Like his father, Cameron is a competitor and will do whatever it takes to get on that field.



In nine games with Oakland this season, he’s hitting .214 with a home run and four RBI. Cameron will look to find his identity on an A’s team who has struggled over the last few seasons.


No matter what team he’s on, Cameron is going to make the most of his opportunities and work hard to become an everyday player on the team.
