About Safeco Field:

Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners, is located near the marvelous Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest. It is one of six ballparks to feature a retractable roof. According to Scott Sistek of, the roof is among the least used in the majors and was designed to effectively delay rain-outs for fans who trek miles upon miles to catch a ballgame.
