On June 6 1998(54 years since D-Day, but more importantly 39 years to the day of my graduation!), Audrey and I went( A 25 minute walk to the stadium) to our first Mariners game of the season. We had great seats just behind the Mariners dugout, thanks to a friend of a friend  It should come as no surprise that the opponent was my favorite team the Los Angeles Dodgers. Final score Dodgers 10 Mariners 6!

I took my trusty Olympus D600-L Digital Camera and caught Ken Griffey Junior in his version of "Casey at the Bat" as follows:

"Mighty Griffey at the Bat"         "Mighty Griffey Swings and Does not Strike out!"

On the way back, we ate at a great Seattle restaurant - Elliot's on the waterfront. All in all, a great day! We have four more Mariners games tickets for this season.
