The Seattle Mariners are making changes to the menu at Safeco Field, with new pizza and beer options among the additions.
With the season just weeks away from beginning, the Mariners will soon roll out the new concession options. Ballard Pizza Company and Great State Burger are among the additions to the ballpark, which will feature a variety of local food and beverage options.
The changes to the menu were highlighted by a team official during a meeting with the Baseball Stadium Public Facilities District earlier this week. More from King 5:
Ryan van Maarth, Mariners director of engineering and maintenance, told the PFD the franchise has acquired eight more “trucks” for the wheel system, which operates the roof. He says it’s phase three of an eight-phase effort to replace the roof system. That includes replacing many of the wheels that help to make the roof move and the computer system, which is nearly 20 years old.
In the short term, the M’s have added new food options to Safeco again. Van Maarth said Ethan Stowell will front a new Ballard Pizza Company in “The Pen,” along with a “Dynamite Chicken” concept. Hop Valley will hoist beers at a new pop-up location, and Great State Burgers, which has a couple Seattle locations, will also have a presence in the stadium.
The Mariners home opener is scheduled for April 10, when they host the Houston Astros.
