Safeco Field

Capacity: 47,116     Opened: 1999

 

Rain or shine, its Mariners’ baseball you’ll find at Safeco Field.

 

What makes this stadium unique?

Safeco Field shields fans from the rainy Seattle weather with its retractable roof that serves as an umbrella instead of fully closing. “Welcome to Safeco Field, Seattle” is painted atop the roof and is visible to passing planes. The main entrance rotunda boasts a 1,000 resin baseball bat chandelier as we as a floor mosaic of a compass rose incorporating elements of the sport’s history. Fan’s can pose for pictures with “The Mitt,” a 9 foot bronze baseball glove or find their favorite team’s logo in the “Quilts.” During the 2011 season the Mariners started the King’s Court Section. This is a place for fans to cheer on pitcher “King” Félix Hernández during his starts. Fans are encouraged to show up in costume for the “Kings Court” and the best is rewarded with a turkey leg.
