Hey guys, I'm a huge A's fan and a baseball fan in general. You can find me over at Athletics Nation and at the Oakland Coliseum on a regular basis. This summer, I'll be taking a trip up north and will be visiting Safeco Field on July 4 when the Mariners face the Orioles. I've been trying to figure out what I can do to get the most out of my trip to Safeco. My general idea is to take a self-guided tour of the ballpark before the game and then end up at my seat 20-30 minutes before the game begins.
I was wondering what you guys feel is the best of the best at the stadium. What are the best concession stands? Are there any unique experiences a fan can have at Safeco? What time do the gates open for a 1:10 pm start?
Thanks a lot for any advice you guys have. I'm really looking forward to seeing your stadium as well as the rest of the Pacific Northwest.
