Seattle's Safeco Field Will Celebrate 10th Birthday
The Seattle Mariner's Safeco Field will turn 10 on July 15h. The team moved from the Kingdome into the outdoor field in the middle of the season. I went to that game with some work buddies, having won a ticket in a drawing. Pictured above is the commemorative ticket. It was only the second outdoor Major League Baseball game that I had seen in my lifetime. I had watched the Mariners play at the Kingdome. Ironically, I had seen my first outdoor Major League game a month and a half earlier at Chicago's Wrigley Field. The Cub's opponent and the Mariner's opponent in both of the games that I have mentioned, by coincidence, was the San Diego Padres.
