Newly painted logos on top of both dugouts will really pop under the new LED lights.

Opening Day is four weeks out and there is a lot going on at Safeco Field to get ready for the 2015 season.

The grounds crew is in daily field prep mode now after a reduced schedule October – February. They’re also about to start practicing the new dance routine they’ll premier on Opening Day. Among the activities for them are fertilizing, mowing, edging, basically all the duties we’re doing to wake our yards up from their winter dormancy.

New seats are being installed in the Diamond Club (right behind home plate) and new seat backs are being installed on the bleachers. The Hit It Here Café is not only getting new furniture and an updated décor, but Centerplate and consulting chef Ethan Stowell have revamped the menu.

The seats in the Diamond Club are being replaced.

The dugouts have both gotten durable new rubberized flooring, and the logos on top of both the home and visitors dugouts are getting a new paint job.

New rubberized flooring in both dugouts will better survive the beating they take from players’ cleats.

Work will continue over the next four weeks to clean and prep the ballpark for the April 6th Opening Day matchup with the Los Angeles Angels. First pitch is 1:10pm.
