Welcome to the first edition of the 2013 Season Ticket Holder Newsletter. We appreciate your support as a Mariners Season Ticket Holder, and look forward to sharing with you Mariners highlights, behind-the-scenes stories and season ticket holder information throughout the season.
The month of April has been a busy one for Mariners Season Ticket Holders. On April 1, many of you were at Safeco Field for our Open House. Photos from the exclusive Season Ticket Holders-only party on the Terrace Club are available now at this online gallery. It was a beautiful night and over 12,000 fans watched Felix top the A's on the great new video screen (see details of the new video screen »). Just a week later at the Home Opener on April 8, the ballpark was full and a select group of Season Ticket Holders participated in the special on-field ceremonies announcing the Mariners starting lineup. Other Season Ticket Holder-only special events in April included the first two of 12 early gate openings (April 17 and 25) where Mariners players signed a lot of autographs for our best fans. Speaking of autographs, we thought you might enjoy this feature produced by ROOT SPORTS® for its Mariners All Access show. Watch Now »

|Safeco Field's New Video Scoreboard - By Scott Holter|
Ever have a friend with such a spectacular home theater set up that you go to great lengths to secure an invitation for the next big game? Well, that television screen you've grown to love will seem like a matchbox compared to the new high definition video scoreboard at Safeco Field - the largest of its kind in Major League Baseball. The best part is there's a standing invite to you for at least 81 games during the next six months.
Covering 11,425 square feet, Safeco's innovative screen is more than a third larger than its nearest MLB competitor at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium, and just 100 square feet smaller than Cowboys Stadium, which is widely recognized as the mega-darling of the sports world.
"The high-def quality of our video screen is better than that of home high-def," said Rebecca Hale, the Mariners Director of Public Information. "Cameras have not even been made to make full use of its technology."
|Welcome to Seattle, Bertha!|
Throughout April and May, be sure to visit the western side of the 300-level to see the other exciting event happening at Safeco Field this spring - SR 99 tunnel construction and the arrival of Bertha, the five-story-tall machine that will dig a two-mile-long tunnel beneath Seattle.
From the upper concourse, you can watch as crews continue building the 80-foot-deep pit where Bertha will start digging this summer. From the NW corner of the upper concourse look to the northwest and you might catch a glimpse of Bertha being moved into the launch pit, piece by piece.
Bertha may not have been on the opening day roster, but her stats are still pretty impressive. She weighs 7,000 tons and, at 326 feet long, would fit perfectly between home plate and the right field foul pole. And of course, like any good ballplayer, she's not afraid of a little dirt. Visit www.alaskanwayviaduct.org for more information, and follow Bertha on Twitter at @BerthaDigsSR99.
