Ballpark Game Plan: Seattle Mariners & T-Mobile Park

Heather 0

Field: T-Mobile Park

Official Site:

Year Completed: 1999

Capacity: 47,929

Covered: Yes

Mascot: Mariner Moose

The Game We’ll See: Tuesday, September 12: Los Angeles Angels vs. Seattle Mariners (see all 30 here!)

This is scheduled to be the last park on our 30-stadium tour. Of course, if we are rained out, we may have to backtrack to see the ones we missed. So, it may or may not really be our last game. However, it will undoubtedly be our celebration night!

We are arranging for group tickets in the outfield of the 100 level. If you would like to join us to celebrate our trip and our Home Runs for Housing home run-a-thon, or just see a game with friends, please let me know and I’ll send you a link to purchase your tickets!

Parking & Transportation:

T-Mobile Park is an easy walk from downtown Seattle, is accessible by light rail and other transit services, and has several convenient garages.  

The Mariners parking garage opens 3 hours prior to game time. There are also several other garages in the area, including the neighboring Lumen Field Garage.  

Oversized vehicle: The parking garage at T-Mobile is 7’0” high, so if you have a large tow vehicle, you will likely fit. Unfortunately, there is no RV parking at T-Mobile. If you are travelling with your RV, I suggest parking at a Park & Ride and taking the light rail system, a train, or a bus to T-Mobile Park.

For information about public transportation options, visit the transportation page on the Mariners’ website.

Stadium Tours:

T-Mobile Park offers gameday tours that include a 60-minute tour of the facility and 30 minutes of time watching batting practice. Tours start 3.5 hours before the first pitch, and begin at the Club Skybridge, accessible from the 5th floor of the Mariners Parking Garage. Tickets are about $50 per person.

General Information:

Bags: T-Mobile Park has a smaller bag limit than most other parks. Clear plastic or vinyl bags may be no larger than 12” x 6” x 12”, and small clutch bags may be no larger than 4.5” x 6.5”. The only exceptions are for medical bags and diaper bags. With an exception for mobility devices, the Mariners do not offer storage options.

Food & Beverages: Fans may bring in one, factory-sealed plastic bottle of still water no larger than 32 ounces. In addition, fans can bring in food in single-serving sizes and an empty plastic beverage bottle up to 32 ounces in size.

Cashless transactions: All transactions are cashless.

Signs: Signs are permitted if they are baseball-related, don’t block views, interfere with the game, contain advertising, or contain offensive materials. They can be no larger than 3 feet in height, and may not be made of or include wood, glass, hard plastic, or any other material that could cause damage or harm.

Foul Balls: Fans may keep foul balls, as long as they don’t interfere with play or enter the playing area to retrieve them.

Gates: The T-Mobile ‘Pen opens 2 hours before first pitch. General gates open 90 minutes prior to first pitch.

Cameras: While cameras are permitted, tripods and selfie sticks are not. The camera and lens, together, may not exceed 6 inches.

Umbrellas: Umbrellas are permitted but may not be opened in seating areas.

Where to Sit:

For shade, sit under an overhang. The very back rows of the 100 level or 300 level near home plate are your best bets.

If you aren’t on a tight budget, choose sections 119 to 141.

The best value is in the Lower Outfield Reserved (Sections 102 – 109, 151, and 152) and Field Box Sections 116 – 119 and 142 – 144.

The lowest priced seats with a good view are the View seats in odd-numbered sections between 321 and 327. Consider picking up these tickets then wandering around the park.


  • Perhaps the most well-known snack at T-Mobile right now is grasshoppers. Served toasted with chili-lime seasoning, they are available from Edgar’s Taco Shack (in the ‘Pen) or Edgar’s Cantina (with a Club or Suite level ticket).
  • MOTO, the trendy West Seattle pizzeria with a months-long waiting list, is now offering a special rectangle-shaped deep-dish pie at T-Mobile. (Section 109)
  • Din Tai Fung serves its renowned Chinese dumplings along with other favorites. (Section 132)
  • Marination has also returned and added grilled miso ginger chicken to its menu. (Section 119)
  • For fans on a budget, the Mariners offer a Value Menu that has a dozen items priced from $2 to $4.

First Time Visitors:

First Game Certificates are available at the Guest Services Centers behind Section 128, Section 329, and in The ‘Pen.


According to the Mariners site, the players will sign autographs at their discretion. The best approach is to wait above or near the dugouts during batting practice.

Other Stadium Tips & Highlights:

The Seattle Mariners offers a Designated Driver program. Sign up at any of the Guest Service Centers, located in Sections 128 and 329, and in the ‘Pen.

The Mariners Hall of Fame and Baseball Museum of the Pacific Northwest are open to fans during home games. They are co-located on the Main Concourse, across from Sections 135 – 141.

The park gates are covered in placards with quotes from books about baseball.

There are four statues at T-Mobile Park. The Mariners’ long-time announcer, Dave Niehaus, is located on the Main Level at Section 105. Ken Griffey, Jr. stands on the corner of Edgar Martinez Drive and Dave Niehaus Way. On the South side of T-Mobile Park on Edgar Martinez Drive, the statue of Edgar Martinez commemorates “The Double” that led to a 6-5 win against the New York Yankees.

The Mariners’ retired numbers are displayed in center field above The ‘Pen and include:

  • 11 – Edgar Martinez
  • 24 – Ken Griffey, Jr.
  • 42 – Jackie Robinson (retired by the MLB)
