Last night I was at Safeco field– love this ballpark! Beautiful venue, great fans, and a friendly staff. Ichiro was once again the story of the night- fans wearing his jersey and carrying signs were out in droves. He received a standing ovation as they chanted his name at his first at bat and the love continued to pour throughout the game. Former Mariner, Alex Rodriguez’s homecoming was not as sweet, just loud boos (don’t blame them!). Both ended up getting beaned by Felix Hernandez (though the latter will spend 6-8 weeks on the DL).

For now, enjoy some pictures from last night as Mariners fans said goodbye to the face of their team for the past decade:

What do you think about the trade? And just curious what people thought about Felix Hernandez beaning Ichiro, Jeter, and ARod. All unintentional?
