It isn’t even August and the Mariners are 20+ games out of first place, far ahead of their normal fall collapse. (Signs of Fall in Seattle – rain is colder, days are shorter, and the Mariners are 20 games out of first place).
We lived in the Seattle area for 18 years and with Little League sons, we attended Mariner games in the old Kingdome. Even then, it was a $100 visit (tickets, parking, snacks).
We started watching the Tacoma Tigers, now Rainiers, for a much better experience (and a $30 visit). Outdoors, parking within sight of our seats, and my sons could roam around the place without getting yelled at.
AAA baseball isn’t too shabby and the Tigers were good!
I’ve been to a few Rockies games. Decent experience, but I’m not a big baseball fan.
I do enjoy Rainier Beer, brewed with pure recycled Seattle sewer water. Gives it that extra kick!
The waitstaff at Billy McHales, Renton, WA, home of 31 different beers, used to sneer at my Rainier beer order. Interesting place after 10 p.m. with 16 car dealerships within a 3 miles radius.
