Baseball returns to Safeco Field on Friday, April 8, as the Seattle Mariners host their home opener of the 2011 Major League Baseball season against the Cleveland Indians.
After a dismal 2010 season, fans are hopeful that new manager Eric Wedge will bring a spark to the team and bring them back to their winning ways.
Opening weekend actually has a few cool promotions as well. On opening night Friday, they’ll be giving away rally towels and magnetic schedules. Saturday’s game gets even better, with my favorite, the Felix Hernandez Bobblehead Night. And if you’ve got kids who are Ichiro Suzuki fans, they’ll get an Ichiro T-shirt if you hit the afternoon game on Sunday.
If you can’t make it to opening weekend, you’ll have plenty more games to choose from.
