Overall this is a nice place to see a game It was raining outside so the retractible roof was over the ballpark.concessions had lots of choices I sat in nice seats the Red Sox beat the Mariners butts 14-3 and that was enjoyable.

I had the pleasure of attending the very first game at Safeco Field in July 1999. The Mariners played the Padres if I remember correctly. I think they lost. The new stadium was very impressive. It is a much better place to watch a ballgame than the grey, falling apart Kingdome. I really don't remember many details, I've only been there a few times and the last time was in 2001 when I got to watch Seattle win one of their 116 games that season. I got to see Cal Ripken Jr. play his last game in Seattle. Ichiro hit a home run and the M's won 1-0. This was just a few days before 9/11. Too bad the Mariners choked in the playoffs. I'm not quite sure where I'm going with this rambling review, but if you're close enough, go to a game at Safeco. It's a scenic ballpark and you have good views where ever you are sitting.

This is the only MLB stadium I've been to. The Stadium itself is immaculate. You can see the field from the concourses, you can order sushi, there is no obstructed view seats, the roof is fast (when it closes/opens) it even has a second deck cafe in left field. My favorite feature is the unique Bullpen Market, behind the visitors pen, and fans taunt the warming up pitcher on occasion. The only downside is the team that plays there, the almost always below .500 Mariners

I went up to Seattle this summer and saw three Red Sox games while I was there. We sat in the center field seats for two of the games and for one I sat towards the front of the top tier on the first base corner of the infield. This stadium was truly amazing. Very clean in every way- dimensions, concourses, everything. It rained at one of the games, and impressively, the roof closed very fast and practically silently. One thing I loved was the ground crew dance around the third or fourth inning, and also the garlic fries. The views are great except the top tier as you go into right field- it is situated high because of the extra box level and it cuts off too much of the field from view. No obstructed views, and with the roof back, it feels like a traditional ballpark. I later returned with a media pass and watched the Mariners take BP from the dugout- the stadium looked even better from the field! Seattle just needs a team to fill this first class stadium.

As I live near Seattle, I have been to Safeco Field for two Mariners games and my sister's graduation ceremony. About the Mariners games, I like the experience of the non-climate roof, even if it requires me to wear a jacket. I went to two consecutive Mariners games in September 2012 vs. the Oakland Athletics. Although they lost both games 1-6 (even with Hernandez pitching), I hope to see another game when the Mariners start their 2015 season. The food is also good; those garlic fries are irresistible.
