The broadcast of today’s game just showed a *brand new* seating section installed overnight. No joke: I was there yesterday, no seating section, and watching the game today, there it was. I have no idea how they pulled this off. It looks like it essentially replaces the beer garden, which would mean the team has decided to sacrifice one of the few things that made Safeco Field unique and cool in order to sell a couple hundred more tickets/game… if it’s permanent. There’s no information on this on the M’s site, it’s not on the seating charts, Ticketmaster won’t sell you a ticket there.
