The Seattle Mariners are making a lot of renovations at Safeco Field. They’re moving in the fences, installing a new hi-fi scoreboard and building a new restaurant in left field called Edgar’s, after former star Edgar Martinez.
The details, according to Mariners.com:
With the hand-operated scoreboard down the left-field line being relocated as part of the shortened fences, the Mariners are removing 384 seats in that same area and putting in a lounge and dining area similar to The ‘Pen section in center field.
The restaurant will have a “South of the Border” flavor and will feature occasional appearances by the Mariners’ Hall of Famer and also include the mezcal liquor, Zac, that Martinez has been marketing the last two years in partnership with hair salon mogul Gene Juarez.
For years, Safeco Field has been lauded for having some of the best stadium eats in the country. This should add to the menu and options at the ballpark. As for fans showing up … that’s another story.
