The pictures on this page are from various games during the 2011 season. SAFECO built in 1999 and seats 47,116. The first and part of the second row show opening Night. Felix Hernandez is shown receiving his Cy Young award. Dave Neihaus our, since 1977, broadcaster passed away in the late fall 2010. He was honored with the sign on the outfield wall. His wife threw out the first pitch and his family is show with Felix. Seattle named a street adjacent to SAFECO Dave Niehaus Way. The next two pictures show the roof open and how it goes out over the train tracks beyond right field when it is open. An unusual occurance of seagulls on the field before a game. Usually they show up about the 7th inning ready to scavenge in the stands after everyone leaves the ballpark after the game. Row three shows the bullpen rookies taking supplies to the bullpen in their kiddie backpacks. When SAFECO opened in July 1999 there were autographs by players and coaches placed on the concourse behind home plate. The ones below are Alex Rodriquez, Edgar Martinez, Lou Pinella. The Moose, Dan Wilson, and Ken Griffey, Jr. Row 4 shows the bullpen area with no fencing between the fans and the players, a statute of a young player with fountain that shoots high with a Mariners homerun, The 'Pen which features a new eating area with lots of good food, Quest, now CenturyLink Field, where the Seahawks football team plays, a target for a very, very long homerun across the street (a ball has never been hit out of SAFECO), Seattle skyline, and Mariners banners. Row 5 deals with Felix Hernandez. Every time Felix pitches a special section is set aside as King's Court, for $30 you get a tickets and King's T-shirt. A spoof on Felix was a TV spot that featured Larry Bernandez. At one of the last games two boys ran the bases in opposite directions wearing size 16 shoes, gathering a jersey, hat, and wrist ban, the winner is shown crossing homeplate. Larry, aka Felix, threw a first pitch to one of his big supporters from the King's Court. Last is the Moose Man, named such for obvious reason.
