Mariners Two Millionth Fan
On Saturday night, the Seattle Mariners hit an attendance milestone that hasn’t happened at Safeco Field since 2010 – the two millionth fan of the year passed through the gates of the ballpark.
Brian Grimm, a 22-year old student from Asotin, Washington, was showered with confetti and greeted by the Mariner Moose at approximately 5:10pm inside the Home Plate Gate.
Grimm, who came over with his girlfriend to attend the game with his mom, her boyfriend and his little brother. This was only the second time that Grimm had come to Safeco Field. The first time was the weekend in July 1999 when the ballpark opened.
Mariners attendance has increased 15% this year over last season. That’s the biggest percentage increase in all of Major League Baseball.
Thanks fans for a great season and for being True to the Blue!
