Last night I was driving back from Alki on the Alaskan Way Viaduct and noticed the lights on for a home game at Safeco Field. When I got home I looked up the final score and was delighted to find that the Mariners defeted the Detroit Tigers by a score of 6 to 3. Safeco Field is among the AIA's 150 most notable structures in the USA for the engineering of its retractable roof, seen here on a bright "the roof is open" sort of Saturday morning. The Tigers will play the Mariners again tonight at 6:00 PM. For weekend games that start at 1:10 PM (like tomorrow's) you can make it a very stress free outing by taking the Sounder train for less than $5.00 from nearly anywhere in the area and arrive at nearby King Street Station without the hassle of driving.
