This Week’s Mariners All-Access

root_sports_northwest This week on Mariners All-Access on ROOT SPORTS, the Mariners top-rated bullpen, defense, some science, and Felix.

Here’s a rundown of Jen Mueller’s lineup for the program:

  • Brandon Maurer in Bullpen – Take a look at his impressive numbers coming out of the pen, why he’s been so successful as a reliever and how it feels to transition from the starting rotation to the bullpen mid-season. Plus learn why the Mariners staff knew he belonged in an eight-man pen.
  • Blowers/Woodward – The Mariners defense is among the best in baseball and Chris Woodward deserves a lot of credit for that. Mike Blowers sits down with the infield coach and discovers the change he made in the players workout routine and how he’s helped improve the defense across the board.
  • Outfield Science – The Mariners outfielders make it look easy, but there’s a nuance most people don’t consider when it comes to outfield play – an outfielder always reacts to what he sees before he hears the bat make contact with the ball. We lean on the expertise of the UW physics professor to understand how the speed of sound and light impact an outfielder.
  • Felix Watch – Felix rebounded from his toughest outing of the year and reminded everyone around baseball why he’s among the best. Plus former teammate Doug Fister weighs in on what impresses him most about watching Felix pitch.
  • Community Relations – A look at the Mariners recent trip to the Seattle Veteran’s Administration Hospital and next Saturday’s Mariners Care Garage Sale, where you can land some unique memorabilia.
  • Soundtrack – The best highlights, plays and reaction from the week of Mariners baseball.

Mariners All Access Airs on ROOT SPORTS:

  • Sunday 11am, 3:30pm, midnight
  • Monday 6am, 6pm
  • Tuesday 6pm
  • Thursday 2:30pm
  • Friday 6pm

#TheArrowHasLanded – First clue at 10 a.m.

RodneyArrow

Fernando’s arrows are taking flight. Follow the Mariners on Twitter after every Rodney save for clues to figure out where each one landed. The fan that finds each arrow will win four tickets to an upcoming home game and an on-field photo before the game.

Check out details from previous scavenger hunts:

Save #39

Save #40

Save #41

Fernando shot off an arrow after securing a 7-5 win for the Mariners vs. the Rangers in Arlington. This was his 42nd save of the season, tying him for the MLB lead. But where did the arrow land?

WE HAVE A WINNER!

“Night Court” will be in session at Safeco Field


Night Court

When Felix Hernandez takes the mound at Safeco Field for his September 13 start against the Oakland Athletics, Safeco Field will be blacked out for “Night Court.”

Instead of the usual bright yellow T-shirts for the King’s Court special seating sections, the first 35,000 fans through the gates of the ballpark will receive a special black T-shirt to commemorate King Felix’s start.

The King’s Court cheering section started in 2011. The popularity has grown over the years and on some occasions it is extended to multiple sections including the Upper Court (the Terrace Club), the High Court (seating in the 300 Level), and the Supreme Court, when the whole ballpark is converted to the King’s Court for Felix’s first home start of the season.

September 8th King’s Court

Mariners fans get a special treat this homestand as Felix is scheduled to make two starts. In addition to the “Night Court” start on September 13, Felix is also schedule to take the mound on Monday, September 8, vs. the Houston Astros. Tickets for the September 8 King’s Court are $30 and include a ticket, a T-shirt and a “K” Card. Those tickets are on sale now at mariners.com/felix.

Tickets for the September 13 “Night Court” game, and all remaining games on the Mariners home schedule, are available at the Safeco Field Box Office and at Seattle Mariners Team Stores (4th & Stewart in downtown Seattle, Bellevue Square, Southcenter Mall & Alderwood Mall). Tickets are also available online at mariners.com/tickets, and by phone at 1-888-SEA-HITS (732-4487).
