This was the scene Saturday, three and a half hours before game time - possibly because the first 20,000 fans got a Griffey plaque.
If you'd like to avoid driving to get to Sunday's game, Seattle Mariners fans can skip Seafair traffic by riding Sound Transit's special Sounder service to the Mariners 1:10pm game against the Los Angeles Angels.
In celebration of Seafair Fleet Week, active duty military personnel can ride all Sound Transit and King County Metro transit services for free Aug. 3-7.
The stadium-bound train from the north will depart Everett at 11:15am and reach Edmonds 15-20 minutes later. Return trains depart King Street Station 35 minutes after the game.
A complete schedule of Sounder service to select Mariners games this season is available here.
Special Sounder service is in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from Safeco Field. Link runs every 10 minutes on weekends and serves 15 stations including the University of Washington and Capitol Hill. Link's Stadium and International District stations are a short walk from the stadium.
Many ST Express and King County Metro buses also drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express bus schedules are available at soundtransit.org/schedule. King County Metro bus schedules can be found here.
Regular fares apply for all Sound Transit services. Getting an ORCA card is a great way to skip lines at ticket vending machines. Cards only cost $5 for adults, plus whatever amount a rider chooses to load in the card's E-purse or the cost of a pass that is good for unlimited transit trips. ORCA works on trains, buses and ferries throughout the region. More information is available here.
