Trip Report - Day 5 - Another Seattle Game

Our second game at Safeco Field, on Saturday June 10th, was just as much fun as the night before. Once again, the crowd was loud and excited and predominantly Blue Jays' fans! Apparently Canadians come from several of the western provinces when the Jays are playing in Seattle.  Spotted this guy wearing flag pants (pretty sure those are pyjama bottoms, am I right?!)
This chandelier made out of mini baseball bats is hanging just inside one of the entrances to the stadium.
Our seats for this game were directly behind home plate, in the last couple of rows near the top. Great views of Russell Martin doing what he does as catcher.
Here's a view of the field as dusk was falling.
To get an idea of our experience at the game, I thought I'd share this blog post written by Erin Davis, who co-hosted a morning radio show in Toronto for many years.  It turns out she was at the same game as we were!

We didn't see Erin but we did spot Hazel Mae, a Canadian sportscaster for Sportsnet, who was filming an on air spot just before the game.
These ladies near us had a great time celebrating the bride-to-be's upcoming nuptials.
Afterwords, we saw this sign on a bus as we were walking to us.  Since the Jays had just won the game, we thought it was the perfect sign but the bus driver just told us to "move along"! ;)
