Texas Rangers At Seattle Mariners, 10/2-10/4/09

I’m combining these three games into a single post, mostly because I want to finally get finished with the baseball trip write-ups. It has dragged on far too long. I went to all three of these games with Jim.

The first of them, I sat in the outfield, and he was up in the press boxes doing stat recording. It was freezing, but I still had to get my ice cream helmet.

Here’s Jim doing his stat thing. He’s the guy sitting at the laptop.

The Rangers won this game 7-4. I honestly don’t remember too much about it. Junior didn’t hit one here…
Hit it here, Junior!

The next day, I spent a bunch of the day walking around Seattle. I ended up walking from the hotel to the stadium. Got a few pictures along the way.

Two questions: 1. Why does an area need to be set aside in a public park for this? 2. What’s an amendent? At least they got PUBLIC right…
Freedom?

This game was apparently oversold. Someone else had the same ticket.

I also got my stadium shot of Safeco at this game.

The Mariners beat the Rangers 2-1, and Ken Griffey Jr. hit his last home run of 2009 at this game. As of the moment, it’s the last of his career, but he will probably end up hitting one this year. It was cool to see, though.

The third game in Seattle, I got to see Felix Hernandez pitch. Awesome. He pitched into the 7th, and gave up 3 earned runs, but he was better than that. Only allowed 3 hits, and got his 19th win. Griffey also got his last hit of the season and was removed for a pinch hitter. The crowd wanted him back for another year.

One More Year!

Seattle beat Texas 4-3.
