Over its thirty-five year history, the Seattle Mariners have accumulated numerous
memorable moments. A handful of playoff appearances and outstanding performances
from legends like Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey, Jr., and Ichiro Suzuki have made Seattle
Mariners tickets a hot commodity for any baseball fan.
After joining the American League West in 1977, the M's failed to reach the postseason or
even notch a winning record until the early 1990s. Despite the lack of early success, fans
embraced baseball in the Pacific Northwest.
The demand for Seattle Mariners tickets in the 1990s rivaled the popularity of grunge
music in the Emerald City. Anchored by the strong pitching of Randy Johnson and the
bat of Ken Griffey, Jr., the Mariners were a force to be reckoned with throughout the
decade. Legendary skipper Lou Pinella harnessed his roster's talent, leading to four playoff
While the M's didn't reach the World Series during any of its playoff runs, the team provided
numerous moments that made baseball fans worldwide wish they had Seattle Mariners
tickets. The Big Unit tossed a no-no in 1990, Edgar Martinez drove in the winning run against
the Yankees in the eleventh inning to win the ALDS in 1995, and Griffey, Jr. had back-to-back
56-home-run seasons in 1997 and 1998.
Since the 1990s, Seattle Mariners tickets have remained popular due the record breaking
success of superstar Ichiro Suzuki. With ace pitcher and perfect game thrower Felix Hernandez
currently anchoring the mound, there's little doubt that Seattle Mariners tickets will remain
in demand as the team reaches new heights.
Seattle Mariners tickets provide baseball fanatics entry into one of the finest stadiums in the
major leagues: Safeco Field.
Replacing the Kingdome as the home of the Mariners in 1999, Safeco sits in the SoDo
District of Seattle near the end of I-90. The ballpark features a retractable roof,
ideal in rainy Seattle.
If not for the Mariners' success in the mid-1990s, Safeco might never have been built. The
team's ownership had been threatening to move the team out of the Emerald City due to
the Kingdome growing obsolete. While voters declined to publicly fund a new stadium in the
early 1990s, Washington State legislators found enough public support to pass a bill funding
a new stadium during the playoff runs of the mid-1990s. Fans responded enthusiastically,
buying up Seattle Mariners tickets wildly as soon as Safeco opened for business.
Seattle sports fans are known as some of the most loud and loyal enthusiasts in America.
Seattle residents support their two major-league sports teams furiously, especially with
the recent departure of their beloved NBA basketball team. Neighboring CenturyLink Field
(formerly Qwest Field) is known for the unrivaled noise fans make for the NFL's Seattle
As is the case with the city's football team, fans buy up Seattle Mariners tickets voraciously.
Especially in the summer and early fall, there are few experiences more enjoyable in Seattle
than taking in a game at beautiful Safeco Field.
While fans have yet to be rewarded with a World Series, Safeco has hosted several playoff
games as well as the All-Star game. It's only a matter of time until Seattle Mariners tickets
will have the words "World Series" printed on them.
