Serna was signed as an amateur free agent by Seattle in June of 1980, and by the following September he was in the major leagues. Playing mostly shortstop down the stretch, Serna batted .255 with 4 home runs in 30 games. That earned him a shot the following year, and he spent the whole 1982 season in Seattle as a utility infielder. In 68 games that season, he batted .225, with just 3 home runs and 8 RBI.
The following season, Serna was returned to the minor leagues. He played for three more seasons, but never played in the majors again. However, in spite of seeming worthless, SG and PG rescued him from despair and he currently patrols the outfield in SB, spitting sunflower seed shells gleefully into the breeze.
