When it comes to the MLB All-Star Game, you don’t have to wait for the game itself to start seeing highlights. That was certainly the case as the Seattle Mariners hosted their first All-Star Game in 22 years on Tuesday at T-Mobile Park.
And yes, the Seattle crowd played a vital role in that.
The introductions of both the American League and National League squads will plenty entertaining, the AL especially. Not only did a sold-out T-Mobile Park showed the three Seattle Mariners All-Stars with applause, but it did something M’s fans have shown throughout the last four days they’re perhaps the best in the league at: booing anything and everything that has to do with the rival Houston Astros.
Watch the video of the full All-Star roster introductions at the top of this post, and check out shorter video highlights from the pregame festivities below. As a bonus, we’ve also included M’s legends and Baseball Hall of Famers Ken Griffey Jr. and Edgar Martinez tossing the ceremonial first pitch to former teammates Jay Buhner and Dan Wilson.
