“From the beginning of the pandemic, the Mariners have made the health and safety of our fans, staff and players our top priority.” said Trevor Gooby, Seattle Mariners Sr. Vice President of Ballpark Operations.

“Public health and medical experts have advised us that masks are effective against the spread of COVID, including the highly transmissible Delta variant. Wearing a mask is a simple thing we can all do to help protect ourselves, our families and our community.”
