Safeco Field is the home of the Mariners baseball team, and the stadium is located just south of the city center in Seattle. The Seattle Mariners’ original home, the Kingdome, was replaced in the 1990s by Safeco Field, which hosted its first Major League Baseball game in 1999. The stadium holds more than 47,000 spectators for baseball games, and features a retractable roof.
Among the attractions at Safeco Field - besides the baseball games themselves - are the Mariners Hall of Fame, the Baseball Museum of the Pacific Northwest, and the many baseball-related pieces of artwork on display throughout the stadium.
Safeco Field is in what’s known as the “SoDo” neighborhood - South of Downtown - and is easily reached via public transportation. One-hour tours of the stadium are available April-October at 10:30am, 12:30pm, and 2:30pm (except on game days); and November-March at 12:30pm and 2:30pm Tuesday-Sunday. Admission for the tour is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, and $8 for children ages 3-12.
