T-Mobile Park | Ballpark Info

Accommodations for Disabilities

T-Mobile was designed with the Americans with Disabilities Act in mind, so it should be pretty easy to enjoy a ballgame at this park. If we haven’t answered your question below, please reach out to the Mariners at MarinersADATeam@Mariners.com or 206-346-4224 before your trip to the ballpark.

Parking: You can find handicap parking spaces in most official Mariners lots. Your best bet is to purchase a pass before the game, as they only have a limited number available on game day. We recommend the Mariners Garage, which can accommodate vehicles up to 7′ in height. Purchase a pass here.

Gates: All gates are accessible, so feel free to enter wherever you’d like. All gates open 2 hours before first pitch, except the the Center Field and ‘Pen Gates, which open 2.5 hours before first pitch.

Elevators: You can find elevators in the following locations:

  • Near the Home Plate Gate
  • Near the Left Field Gate
  • Section 114
  • Section 191 – This elevator only stops on the street level, main level, and center field bleachers.
  • Section 106 – This elevator only stops on the main level, at the Cafe, suite level, and view level

Seating: You’ll find accessible seating available in almost every single section of the park, so you’ll be able to choose your favorite view. The Mariners team will work with you to ensure that you’re able to find seats for your entire party nearby, just give them a call at 206-346-4001.

Batting Practice: Hats off to the Mariners for providing equal access to batting practice for all guests. If you are unable to navigate the steps in the seating bowl, a reservation can be made with the team to ensure you have the ability to attend batting practice. Contact the Mariners for more information and to make your reservation: MarinersADATeam@mariners.com or 206-346-4224.

Bags

Backpacks are no longer allowed at T-Mobile Stadium. You can bring in soft, single compartment bags as long as they fit the MLB mandated size requirements of 16″ x 16″ x 8″. Coolers are allowed in the park.

Batting Practice

Another great thing about T-Mobile is that they open up the Center Field and ‘Pen Gates 2.5 hours prior to first pitch, making it one of the few parks where you can actually watch the home team take BP. The Mariners will hit 2 hours and 35 minutes prior to first pitch, and the visiting team will hit 1 hour and 35 minutes prior to first pitch. Get to the field early enough, and you’ll be able to watch all of it. Just keep in mind that batting practice is usually skipped on both Sundays and day games.

Bring Your Own Food

Single serving, individually wrapped food is allowed into the ballpark, as long as it is easily identified. If you’re bringing in fruits like apples and oranges (or anything else that can be thrown), make sure you cut it up beforehand. You can also bring in one sealed bottle of water, no larger that 1 liter.

Guest Services

If you have any issues or questions while at the ballpark, please utilize Guest Services. Each MLB team has this department, and they are solely focused on making sure each fan has a safe and memorable time at the ballpark.

You can find Guest Service centers in the follow locations:

  • Section 128
  • Section 329
  • The ‘Pen
Gates

All gates at T-Mobile open no later than 2 hours before game time. The Center Field and ‘Pen Gates actually open even earlier — 2.5 hours before first pitch. Just arrive early if you want to visit the ‘Pen, as they only open it to the first 1,000 fans.

Buckethead Tip: Buckethead babishop shares that T-mobile customers can enter through a “Fast Track” gate near the T-Mobile ‘Pen. Just show your phone.

Promos

The Mariners run promotions throughout the season where there may be giveaways or special events. Check this link to see if your game is included.

Radio Broadcast

If you prefer to listen to the radio call of the game while in the ballpark, tune to KIRO FM 710.

Restrooms

You’ll find restrooms scattered throughout the ballpark. T-Mobile also includes Family restrooms and All-Gender restrooms.

Women’s Restrooms: Center Field Gate Walkway, Home Plate Gate, KeyBank Diamond Club, Left Field Gate, Center Field Main Concourse, Lef-Center Main Concourse, Right-Center Main Concourse, sections 108, 114, 120, 134, 144, 150, 213, 218, 224, 234, 239, 247, 307, 312, 216, 321, 327, 333, 340, and 345.

Men’s Restrooms:: Center Field Gate Walkway, Home Plate Gate, KeyBand Diamond Club, Left Field Gate, Center Field, Lef-Center Field, Right-Center Field, and in sections 107, 112, 123, 135, 146, 150, 213, 217, 223, 238, 246, 307, 313, 318, 323, 331, 339, and 344.

Family / All-Gender Restrooms: Sections 105, 120, 234, 319, 327 and 333.

Tailgating

There is no official tailgating policy available. Since the official lots are garages, you can safely assume that there will be no grilling allowed.

Tours

The Mariners offer one-hour tours of T-Mobile Park. Stops include the Press Box, Owners Suite, Visitors Clubhouse and more. We even got to go on the field and sit in the dugout, but are not sure if these are regular stops. While in the press box, take a moment to see the dented plaster and the foul ball that caused it.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for kids, and $11 or Senior or Military. Book your tour here.

T-Mobile Park| Must Do

Check out the Mariners Statues

Outside of home plate there is a statue of Mr. Mariner, Ken Griffey Jr. “The Kid” only played at T-Mobile Park (originally SafeCo Field) for three seasons — the inaugural season of 1999 and his final seasons in the MLB, 2009 & half of 2010 — but T-Mobile park is still called “The House that Griffey Built”. His number 24 was retired in 2016. He’s one of the most beloved players in the history of the MLB and is often credited with saving the Mariners from folding or being relocated.

In section 105, you’ll find a statue of the Hall of Fame Broadcaster Dave Niehaus. Niehause spent 33 years as the play-by-play announcer for the club. Niehaus is sitting at this desk, microphone in hand, with his scorebook flipped to game 5 of the 1995 ALDS, the moment of his most famous call — Edgar Martínez’s “The Double”. “The Double” would win the game for Seattle to send them to the ALCS, and is one of the best Mariner’s moments in history. Listen to his call of the Bottom of the 11th below.

Watch the M’s Battery Warm Up in The ‘Pen

If you are a big fan of pitching, T-Mobile gives you the opportunity to experience something that no other park does. Get to the game early enough and you’ll be able to secure a spot on the fence in The ‘Pen to watch the Mariners’ opener warm up. The ‘Pen opens up 2.5 hours prior to first pitch, which is half an hour earlier than any other gate at the park. You’ll be just a few feet from a Major League battery as they go through their warm-up routine. One thing to be aware of is that The ‘Pen is typically a party scene, so if you’re not into that, you’ll want to find your seat after warmups.

Visit the Mariner’s Museum and Hall of Fame

The Mariners currently have two players wearing their cap in Cooperstown — Ken Griffey Jr. and Edgar Martinez, but 9 members of the Mariners have been inducted into the team’s hall of fame. You’ll find their plaques and biographies in the Hall of Fame, located near sections 135-141. You’ll also find The Baseball Museum of Pacific Northwest there. Free and open to all fans during game day.

Hit the Driving Range for a Chance to Win Swag

Located in Right Field near section 194, you’ll find a virtual driving range where you can compete for swag. We’ve heard of fans winning everything from t-shirts to autographed baseballs!

Sing and Dance to Louie Louie Can’t Hold Us

It’s tradition at every park to sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh inning stretch. But in Seattle, after the final notes of the baseball anthem, “Can’t Hold Us” by Seattle hip hop artist Macklemore is pumped through the speakers. Macklemore is a huge baseball fan and there is some speculation that he may have chosen his stage name as an homage to former Mariner Mark Mclemore. Macklemore of course, is also well known for writing the song “My Oh My” in 2011 in honor of the late and legendary Mariners broadcaster Dave Niehaus.

The M’s used to play “Louie Louie” after the seventh inning classic, and fans would bust a move for a shot of fame on the Jumbotron. Apparently, in 1985, an elaborate prank tried to get the tune recognized as Washington State’s official song. It failed, but “Louie Louie” was played at every Mariners home game until 2022…so there’s that.

Check out the Art in Park

Seattle is an artsy city, and that’s reflected in its ballpark. If you walk through the main entrance at home plate, you’ll see a chandelier made of 1,000 baseball bats, and a huge compass rose mosaic. You’ll find tons of other local artwork throughout the park including a neat “quilt” made of license plates that represents all 30 MLB teams (near the right field gate), and our favorite “The Defining Moment”, a mural of Martinez’s “The Double” (left field gate). Read about all of the artwork in T-Mobile Park here.

Did we forget something?

Baseball Bucket List relies on information from Bucketheads to keep our guides and resources up to date.

T-Mobile Park | Transportation and Parking

T-Mobile is downtown, so you’ll find law enforcement directing traffic around a predetermined path. Our recommendation is to have a game plan for parking before you head towards the ballpark.

Official T-Mobile Park Lots

There are three official parking garages located near T-Mobile park. They’re all garages, which is helpful in Seattle’s rain. The official garages are Mariners Garage ($20-$50 depending on spots and the game), CenturyLink Event Center Garage ($10-$50), and Union Station Garage ($8-$30). The Mariners Garage is attached to the park by a sky bridge, making it the easiest option. Century Link is located across the street, and Union Station garage will be a bit of a walk, half a mile away from the park.

Off-Site / Free Parking Options Near T-Mobile Park

Seattle’s parking situation is usually in flux. We recommend taking a peak at the SDOT’s website, which has realtime information on available parking. You should be able to find plenty of free or metered street parking if you don’t mind a longer walk to the ballpark. Buckethead babishop also shared that there is free street parking behind the BMW dealership on 7th Ave S. It’s located on a one-way street and is back-in parking only, so keep that in mind.

Public Transportation

If you’d rather not drive to the park, you do have several options for public transportation.

Link Light Rail: You can ride the Link light rail to T-Mobile if you’re coming from anywhere between the University of Washington and Angle Lake. Get off at the Stadium stop or the International District/Chinatown station, which are both a short walk to the ballpark. If you are coming from the Angle Lake or Tukwila rail stations you can park your car there for free, and ride to the ballpark for a few bucks.

Bus: There is a bus stop at 4th Ave and Edgard Martinez Dr S, just feet away from the park. The southbound 21, 116, 118, 119, 131, and 132 routes will stop there. The northbound 5, 19, 21, 24, 26, 28, 29, 33, 37, 116, 118, 119, 124, 131, 132, 150, 177, 178, 190 buses all stop at the 4th Ave S and S Royal Brougham Way stop, just across the street.

Water Taxis and Ferries: If you want a uniquely Seattle experience, hop on one of the ferries or water taxes available. The Pier 52 terminal is less than a mile walk from the ballpark. If the weather is nice, spending the afternoon at the pier and slowly making your way towards the park can be a great way to enjoy the day and see parts of the city.

The public transportation options to T-Mobile park are almost overwhelming. If you’re unsure of what your best route is, try using the King County METRO trip planner.

Uber & Lyft

You have plenty of public transit options, so we’d recommend going that route. Many fans do take Uber or Lyft into SoDo to avoid having the find their own way. Uber is the “official rideshare partner” so you may see their signage around, but feel free to still use Lyft. You may actually get a car from their service more quickly since everyone else will be staring at Uber signage all day.

If you’re new to Uber, you can use this link to get a discount on your first few rides.

T-Mobile Park | Best Seats

Best Seats for Mariners History

In 2012, T-Mobile Park (SafeCo Field at the time) saw something crazy — 2 perfect games and 1 combined no hitter, all in the same season. One of those moments was courtesy of beloved Mariner Felix Hernandez aka “King Felix”. Section 150 of the ballpark was deemed King’s Court back in 2011 (it would grow to include 3 sections eventually), and The Court went crazy on August 15, 2012 when Felix tossed a perfect game against the Rays. King Felix finished his career with the M’s in 2019. The King’s Court may be gone, but those seats still hold the best memories at T-Mobile Park.

Best Seats for Game Views

We’re fans of the Club Section 200 level at almost every park, and T-Mobile doesn’t disappoint. You get a slightly elevated view of the playing field, and a view of the skyline (from the 1B site) if the roof is open. Our favorite sections are 223 and 224.

Move on up to the View Level in the 300 sections and you’ll still get great views of the field, and even better views of the city. These seats are going to be one of the best values in the park. One thing that is unique about T-Mobile is that the upper sections of the park still have nearly as many amenities and food options as the main level.

In 2013 we were fortunate enough to get the VIP treatment at SafeCo Field. On top of an on field tour, we got to sit in the Diamond Club and visit the private lounge. This is the way to watch baseball. Unfortunately, the cost of these tickets are insane.

Where not to Sit

T-Mobile is beautiful. There are no major obstructions of the field of play, which makes picking tickets a lot less stressful. If you choose to sit in the bleachers, just keep in mind that you might have an obstructed view of the scoreboard. And if you are looking forward to a local beer at the ballpark, make sure you do not sit in section 104, which is alcohol free.

Best Seats for Shade

T-Mobile Park’s roof is more of an umbrella for shade than anything else. There is no AC in the park, so the roof won’t be closed on a hot sunny day. Your best bet for shade will be to choose the last several rows of any section in the park. The overhang of the section above, or the roof will block the sun from hitting those rows. Seats on the 3B side will be the first to get shade. Avoid the outfield.

Best Seats for Foul Balls

Looking to snag a souvenir at T-Mobile? According to foulballz.com, your best bet will be in sections 135-140 along 3B and 121-126 along 1B.

BEERS

Local favorites: If you are looking for a taste of Seattle’s craft beer scene, your best option is to visit Cask Ale Station in section 129. This stand features rotating kegs of local breweries. Heads up, it may have changed its name to Power Alley Bar in 2020, but should be in the same location.

Value beers: In 2020, the Mariners introduced $5 and $6 12oz cans, which is sadly some of the cheapest beer in the MLB. You can of course find the typical “everyman brews” like Miller High Life and Busch Light, but you’ll be pleased to know that several of the local favorites are in the $6 range.

We recommend: Try any of the IPAs, they’ll all be good. If you’re not a fan of those, try the Golden Road Mango Cart Wheat Ale, which is fruity and refreshing and great for a warm day.

The Must Have: Garlic Fries

Garlic Fries are iconic in Seattle. There was even a brief a tradition based around them at T-Mobile park. In 2007, a fan dropped his fries while trying to catch a foul ball. Broadcaster Mike Bowers noticed and sent an intern to run a new batch of fries down to the man. The Mariners scored and “Rally Fries” were born. The fad has died off since then, but the fries are still so, so good. Get them in sections 106, 136, 149, 187, 325, and 340.

Something Special: The Crab Sandwich

You’re in Seattle, get some seafood. The Crab Sandwich from Way Back Crab Shack is packed with crab and seasoned perfectly. Get a side of Old Bay Fries. It’s expensive but worth it. Section 187.

The Challenge: Grasshoppers

In Texas, they sell rattlesnake sausage. In Seattle, they sell toasted chili lime grasshoppers. There’s not much to say here, but if you’re adventurous, give them a try at Edgars Cantina in The ‘Pen.

Vegetarian and Vegan Options at T-Mobile Park

You have a few options for vegetarian fare at T-Mobile Park. You’ll find the Impossible Burger at Lil Woody’s in The ‘Pen, and the Beyond Burger at the HIt i Here Cafe. The Veggie dogs are also reportedly vegan. Check out The Natural food stand in section 133 for multiple Beyond options, veggie dogs, and avocado toast. Edgar’s Cantina in The ‘Pen offers a tofu delight sandwich (skip the aioli and it’s vegan). And Hiroshi’s Sushi in section 132 offers a veggie roll.

Bars and Restaurants

We believe that in order to fully experience a ballpark, you should spend some time in the nearby area. We’re also big believers that pre and post game rushes are awful. We suggest you spend some time at these local establishments instead of sitting in traffic or rushing to the train.

Sluggers | 6538 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104| Website | Menu | Click to Call
Just down the street from T-Mobile Park you’ll find this sports bar with a pretty good menu and great drinks. We like any of their burgers or if you find yourself there on a Saturday, their chili is a must try. A solid choice to have a bite and a cold beer at before a game.

Buckethead Tip: User babishop recommends that as soon as you go in, head upstairs and walk to the back to the second bar. You can usually walk right up and get served fast.

The People’s Burger | 922 Occidental Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134 | Website/Menu | Click to Call
A local favorite hamburger stand where you’ll find one of the best burgers around, hand-cut fries and super fresh ingredients. We recommend the jalapeno burger, it’s just the right amount of heat and so good that you’ll be craving it for days afterwards. But you really can’t go wrong here, it’s a great spot to fill up before or after a game.

FYI: They have gluten-free buns and a veggie burger if you’re traveling with someone who has dietary restrictions.

Tai Tung Restaurant | 655 S King St, Seattle, WA 98104 | Website | Menu | Click to Call
Located in the International district, this 75 year old Chinese restaurant (the oldest in Seattle!) was frequented by Bruce Lee back in the day. They’ve even set up a shrine of sorts in his honor at his old regular table. You won’t find better Chinese food anywhere, and if you want to try out Bruce Lee’s favorite dish, we’re told you should order the beef with oyster sauce.

Local Attractions

If you’re traveling with a family or just trying to make the most out of your trip to the Seattle area, here are some recommended nearby attractions.

The Seattle Great Wheel | Website
You’ve probably seen this giant ferris wheel in pictures of the Seattle skyline, along with its awesome light show at night. The Seattle Great Wheel is 175 feet tall and has 42 climate-controlled gondolas, each able to hold up to eight passengers. You can’t beat the amazing views and the experience, albeit a little scary for us afraid of heights. Tickets will run you about $15 for the 12 minute ride.

Smith Tower | Website
The Smith Tower was Seattle’s very first skyscraper and has become an alternative to the much more crowded Space Needle. Inside you’ll find a museum, a self-guided tour and exhibits on the tower’s history and then 35 stories up, an observation deck with views of downtown, Mt. Rainier and Elliott Bay. There’s also a cool little speakeasy-style bar at the top with really good craft cocktails.
Tip: Watch their twitter for gameday discounts and perks for T-Mobile Park ticket-holders.

Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park | Website
If you’re a history buff, you’ll love this free-admission museum full of interesting artifacts and interactive exhibits on the early 20th century gold rush. Located in Pioneer Square and about a 10 minute walk to the ballpark, it’s a great place to spend a couple of hours before heading to a Mariners game.
