Seattle Mariner Baseball Game

Susan surprised me with tickets to a Seattle Mariner baseball game for my birthday this year. The tickets were for the game on Saturday against the Minnesota Twins. The Mariners lost the game, but it was so much fun to spend the weekend in Seattle. Besides going to the game, we ate dinner at one of our favorite downtown restaurants - Etta's.
This enormous chandelier made of baseball bats is one of the first things you see once inside the stadium.

One of the many food booths around the stadium. We also heard they sell Fried Rice Krispy Cookies, but I did not see that booth.

Outside the Kids Clubhouse, a gift store that caters to kids.

The fountain located outside the Playfield.

I love this mural.

A nice tribute to Dave Niehaus. A staff member will use your camera to take a picture of you sitting next to Dave in the broadcast booth.

We had perfect seats. There were many, many foul balls hit during the game, but none of them came into our section.

The self-serve yogurt stations were very busy on Saturday.

I took this picture of Susan from the other side of the stadium.
