THE SPIRIT OF OPENING DAY

Today you’ll dig in the closet for your glove and snap a ball into it while sipping your morning coffee.

Today you’ll drive to work and admonish yourself to “keep your head down” and your eye on the road.

Today your team will be in first and planning to stay there.

Today you’ll still be able to turn the double play.

Today you’ll end your contract holdout.

Today you won’t lose a business deal in the sun.

Today you’ll find yourself rotating your arm around your head to stretch the shoulder and keep it loose.

Today sunflower seeds strangely find their way into your back pocket.

Today you’ll think of wearing a black suit to match the eye black.

Today you’ll have the steal sign.

Today you slip up in a meeting and mention “our sales team vs. lefties.”

Today as the toast comes out of the toaster, you’ll still remember how to execute a perfect “pop-up” slide.

Today a hot dog and peanuts for lunch will sound about right.

Today you tell a co-worker to “get loose.”

Today the only strike you’ll know about is above the knees and below the armpits.

Today you’ll wear your jacket only on your pitching arm.

Today you’ll buy two packs of gum and stuff them in the side of your mouth to look like a player.

Today, during lunch, you’ll wonder why Coke doesn’t come in a wood can.

Today you’ll scratch yourself and spit for no apparent reason.

Today you’ll wonder why stirrup socks never caught on as a fashion rage.

Today you’ll be the rookie looking to make it big.

Today you’ll be the wily vet with just a little something left.

Today you’ll look for the AM dial on your radio.

Today mom’s watching.

Today dad’s in the backyard with his glove.

Today will be hopeful.

Today it’ll still be a kids’ game.

Today you’ll be a kid.

Today is Opening Day.

Opening Night and Supreme Court Hightlight Mariners Opening Homestand

13_Opening Day

Monday is Opening Night at Safeco Field, a night of pomp and ceremony, a little fireworks, and Mariners fans’ first up-close look at the team. It’s always a great day, and in fact, we here at the Corner of Edgar & Dave wonder why it’s not a national holiday. But we digress.

If you have not already made plans to be at Safeco Field on Monday, there’s still time to get tickets. And what a night it will be.

Jamie Moyer, the winningest pitcher in Mariners history, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, which will be caught by his former battery mate, Mariners Hall of Famer Dan Wilson.

Fresh off the stages of South By Southwest, Seattle band Pickwick will perform a set of three songs including a cover of Elvis Costello’s Pump It Up, John Fogerty’s baseball classic Centerfield, and an original composition called Window Sill. You fans of KEXP know Pickwick well. For those who are new to the group, their sound is a fusion of blues, soul and R&B, with tight instrumental grooves and the powerful, soulful voice of singer Galen Disston.

Pickwick will perform Opening Night at Safeco Field.

One of the highlights of the pregame ceremony is the always-emotional first run around the bases by a Make-A-Wish® child. This year, it’s 11-year old Marlee Burkett of Sammamish. She did a few practice laps at Safeco Field on Friday, and she looks to be in mid-season form.

We’ll also hear the dulcet tones of our beloved Dave Niehaus as he reads a classic poem about the magic of opening day and baseball.

Opening Night is only the first of a 10-game homestand. Other highlights include a convening of the Supreme Court on Thursday, April 11, for Felix’s first Safeco Field start of the year. The first 25,000 fans will get a King Felix Supreme Court t-shirt and commemorative K card, courtesy of ROOT SPORTS®. Special ticket prices for the game are $10 for all View Level seats and $25 for select Main Level, Terrace Club and Outfield Reserved seats.

The Supreme Court will be in session for Felix's first Safeco Field start of 2013 on Thursday vs. the Rangers.

Saturday, April 13, is the annual Salute to Armed Forces Night, presented by The Boeing Company, where we pay tribute to the men and women serving our nation in the military. The evening will feature a special pre-game ceremony beginning at 5:30 p.m. Current and former members of the U.S. military receive special discounts. Following the game, 15,000 fans will take home a commemorative Mariners military coin, courtesy of Boeing.

Sunday, April 14, is Drawstring Backpack Day, and a Senior Special discount day.

There are also two Safeco Insurance Grand Slam Family Pack Nights and a BECU Family Night during the opening homestand. Come on out to the ballpark and help usher in another season of Mariners Baseball.
