Kathy mentioned the other day that we bought our tickets for next baseball season. We decided that full season tickets would probably be too much for us, so we chose to go with the ”16 game plan.” Last weekend was the Mariners Fanfest, a big shindig at Safeco field. Henry got to run around the bases, we toured the Mariners’ clubhouse, saw the control room for the retractable roof, heard some players and coaches speak, and had some stadium food. We weren’t sure beforehand, but it turns out hot dogs taste better at the ball park even without a game to watch. Best of all, though, we got to go sit in our seats.
They’re great: row 28 on the field level, first-base side. We’ll be close to Ichiro (Henry’s favorite Mariner) and just steps from a view of the train tracks. They’re also in prime foul ball territory. We can hardly wait. Just 70 days until opening day!
