The end of the 2021 Major League Baseball season saw a lot of excitement from the Seattle Mariners! They went into the last weekend of the year with a chance to secure a spot in the playoffs if they won out – and the fans were believing like it was 1995 all over again.
They sold out their last few games and it was electric!
As the 2023 season approached, the team has made some good trades and there is a buzz around town that we may be the hot team this year. I got tickets for the home season opener and am excited to hear that it's sold out as well. Let's play ball!
Here are my tips on attending a Mariners game at T-Mobile Park:
Mariners Value Game Tickets
Throughout the season, you can buy tickets to select seats for nearly 40% off the regular price right from the Seattle Mariners website. These are a great way to see the game as they offer $10 View Level & Bleachers, $20 Main Level, and $30 Terrace Level tickets. Quite a few of of these games also fall on promotion nights – thus you'll get some free swag as well!
Starting in June, T-Mobile Park holds special Fireworks Nights on Fridays at the conclusion of the game. They've partnered with Pyro Spectaculars, the same company who produces the New Year's Eve at the Space Needle extravaganza. Since they shoot the fireworks off above the sign in left centerfield, they close the bleachers right under the sign in the 9th inning. Thus, if you're sitting in one of those seats, there's a possibility they may let you out on the field to watch!
Where To Sit
Obviously anywhere down near the field is great seat, but what about the cheap seats?!
If you are attending a Fireworks Night and sit in the left field bleachers, there is a chance you might be able to get on the field like I did in my video above! The view may be a little bit away from the action, but you're really close to great spots like Edgar's Cantina to grab a beer and the T-Mobile 'Pen overlooking the bullpens. Happy hour draft beers are just $5 in the 'Pen!
When it's hot in the middle of the summer, you can splurge for seats in the 200 section and sit under the upper deck, or choose the upper deck on the 3rd base line. At about 2pm, the sun has passed by enough and you'll actually be sitting in the shade.
And my favorite spot to sit when I am with people who haven't been to a game, is the upper deck on the 1st base side. If it's a night game, you will always have the best view in the house! The stadium frames downtown Seattle perfectly and when the sun sets, it's a beautiful sight.
Value Food Options
They've expanded their value food offerings with quite a few items for a few dollars each. It's all your usual ball park favorites: hot dogs, Coca-Cola fountain soft drinks, popcorn, nachos, peanuts, and Red Vines licorice!
All Value Menu items are available at every game at all Rolling Roof concession stands throughout the ballpark. For the shortest lines, head up to the third deck above right-center field. You'll wait maybe a couple moments, instead of 15-20 mins on the main level.
Hope to see you at a game this season. Go Mariners!
