Felix’s Supreme Court back in session on April 11
The “Supreme Court” is a stadium-wide version of the popular “King’s Court” section that is in attendance down the left-field line for all of Felix’s starts at Safeco, with fans in that area given a yellow King Felix T-shirt and a big “K” card, which have become quite a sight when the group stands and chants and every time Hernandez gets two strikes on a hitter.
The Supreme Court debuted last year in the first start after Hernandez threw a perfect his perfect game against the Rays and the result was a Safeco Field that looked like a sea of yellow supporters.
Hernandez will start twice on the opening road trip — tonight against the A’s in the season opener at 7:07 p.m. in Oakland and Saturday in Chicago against the White Sox. So his first home appearance will be April 11 against the Rangers.
The first 25,000 fans that night will receive a special t-shirt and the commemorative K card, courtesy of ROOT SPORTS. First pitch is 7:10 p.m.
Special ticket prices for the game are $10 for all View Level seats and $25 for select Main Level, Terrace Club and Outfield Reserved seats. Tickets for the game are on sale now without service charge at the Safeco Field Box Office and Mariners Team Stores. They can also be purchased online at mariners.com and by phone at 1-888-732-4487.
“The first Supreme Court on Aug. 21, to celebrate Felix’s perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays, created such a special atmosphere in the ballpark that we wanted to do it again to celebrate Felix’s first start of the season at Safeco Field, and to celebrate that he will be in a Mariners uniform for years to come,” said Kevin Martinez, the Mariners vice president of marketing.
