As players gear up for the season in Peoria, fans back home have been circling their calendars for all of the big games at Safeco Field this summer. With 81 home games (and hopefully more), there certainly are plenty to choose from. While single-game tickets don’t go on sale to the public until March 5 at 10 a.m. (March 1 at noon for Mariners Mail subscribers), fans can secure their seats today with a Mariners 10-Game Flex Pack. It’s a great opportunity to get tickets before everyone else, and save money vs. single-game ticket prices while you’re at it. You can learn more here.
But how do you pick just 10? We put Mariners broadcaster Aaron Goldsmith to the test.
AARON’S 10-GAME FLEX PACK:
Friday, April 8 vs. A’s
My favorite day of the year. The home opener. Even us radio guys dress up for this one.
Friday, April 29 vs. Royals
Sure, it’s your first chance to see the defending World Series champs, but have you seen this year’s beard hat? My ten are already set aside. That leaves 19,990 to divvy up amongst yourselves.
Wednesday, May 11 vs. Rays
By now you know that special things tend to happen during these Mariners matinées. Remember what Felix did to the Rays in one of these in 2012? Plus, for you stirrups fans, it’ll be a chance to see Brad Miller return to Seattle with his new team.
Friday, May 27 vs. Twins
Fireworks Nights at Safeco Field are just the best and here’s your first chance this season. Curious about the theme? I was too: Mariners Music Mix. But wait, there’s more! We’re giving away Mariners bomber hats, too.
Sunday, June 26 vs. Cardinals
Day baseball at Safeco Field + interleague play against my childhood team (Cardinals first visit to Seattle since 2002!) = sign me up.
Saturday, July 16 vs. Astros
Crossing my fingers for a King vs. Keuchel matchup in this Saturday night showdown. If that doesn’t pan out, at least there will be Robinson Cano bobbleheads.
Monday, August 1 vs. Red Sox
Let’s not allow those Red Sox fans to take over Safeco Field. As much as I’ll enjoy seeing Carson Smith again, I’m hoping he stays put in the bullpen.
Saturday, August 6 vs. Angels
Gotta be the biggest weekend at Safeco Field in recent memory and it’s all about The Kid. You’ll see #24 retired before the game and will take home a replica Hall of Fame Plaque.
Friday, August 19 vs. Brewers
Whaaaaat? There’s a Star Wars themed fireworks show following the game? I wouldn’t lie to you.
Friday, September 30 vs. A’s
It’s Fan Appreciation Night at Safeco Field which means we’ll show you a lot of love. You might drive home with something awesome.
