Seat view from section 247 at T-Mobile Park, home of the Seattle Mariners

247 is probably a little deeper into left field than most fans are willing to sit but it was a great experience. I liked the intimacy of a small club section (there were only 11 rows in all). Our waitress was great, very attentive and came around quiet frequently to see if we needed anything. There are tvs scattered all throughout the club area which would be especially handy on Saturdays in the fall when Washington football is going on or when Seahawks games are being played on Sundays.
By just looking at the map of Safeco Field, these seats don't seem like much but we could still distinguish one player from another by reading the numbers on the back of their jerseys and could still see the scoreboard really well. The scoreboard is a spectacle in itself, it's the largest in Major League Baseball or will be until some other team tops it probably soon. I thought the Kansas City Royals had already made the claim to have the largest jumbo tron.

Fans in 247 are dead weight in terms of crowd noise, very casual and uninterested but they somehow show up and spend money. But that goes for most of the ballpark, not just this section - people in Seattle are just kind of whatever - I would never call this place a big baseball town. And what's odd is they say Century Link Field is the loudest stadium in the NFL (home of the Seattle Seahawks).

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 247, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a Mariners/Chicago White Sox game at Safeco Field.
