I just came back from watching the Mariners play the Oakland A’s at Safeco Field, the first Major League Baseball game I’ve ever seen in person. I think I hit the jackpot. For the price of 9 innings I got to see 15. The game lasted more than 5 hours, but we stuck around and watched the last couple of innings from better seats left open by fans who had given up and gone home. It paid off: The Mariners won, 8-7.
