The Seattle Mariners today announced that they will play a traditional doubleheader at Safeco Field on Wednesday, Sept. 26, against the Cleveland Indians, not a split doubleheader. The first game is scheduled to begin at 4:05 p.m., and the second game will begin approximately 30 minutes after the end of game one. A single ticket will be good for admission to both games. Gates will open at 2:05 p.m.

Because the first game is actually a makeup of one of the four snowed out games at Cleveland in April, the Indians will be designated the home team and bat last. [The other three games were made up on separate trips to Cleveland, including a game scheduled for Aug. 30.] As the teams' positions in the standings show today, both games could be significant factors in the American League West, Central and Wild Card races during the final week of the season.

"The decision to play a traditional doubleheader is primarily a thank you to our fans who have supported the Mariners so well this season. It will be two games for the price of one, and a great day of baseball at Safeco Field. In effect, we have an 82nd home game this year. Although the Indians technically will be the home team in the first game, the Mariners will have the home crowd and home field advantage," said Mariners President Chuck Armstrong.

A "split doubleheader" would have resulted in two separate games (probably at 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m.) with a separate ticket required for admission to each game.

Tickets for the Sept. 26 doubleheader and all remaining Mariners home games can be purchased without a service charge at Seattle Mariners Team Stores (4th & Stewart in downtown Seattle, Bellevue Square, Southcenter Mall, Alderwood Mall and Capital Mall in Olympia), and at the Safeco Field box office. Tickets are also available on , by phone at 206-622-HITS, and through Ticketmaster.
