Today In Sports History July 15th,1999: First Ever Game At Safeco Field

On this day in sports history July 15th, 1999 the Seattle Mariners had their inaugural game at Safeco Field. The Mariners lost 3-2 to the San Diego Padres. I wasn’t lucky enough to go to the first ever game at Safeco Field but as a huge Seattle Mariner fan and being 11 years old at the time I was lucky enough to get my dad to take me to Safeco Field later that year.

I believe the Mariners played the Toronto Blue Jays and Griffey hit his last home run as a Mariner before heading to the Cincinatti Reds. Safeco now is called T-Mobile field and that will take a long time to get used to. Obviously with what’s going on in the world right now we aren’t going to be watching any games at Safeco Field. And with COVID taking away stables like Pyramid Brewing across the street it may never feel exactly the same as before but being lucy enough to visit stadiums all around the country I have to say nothing feels like home and Safeco (T-Mobile now) sure feels like home.
