Photos: Safeco Field sign comes down as T-Mobile Park takes over

Feb 13, 2019, 2:24 PM

The building may already officially be known as T-Mobile Park, but the Mariners’ home stadium is finally undergoing aesthetic changes to reflect its new name.

On Wednesday, a crew took down the Safeco Field sign that has adorned the park’s home plate entrance at the corner of Edgar Martinez Drive and Dave Niehaus Way since it opened in 1999.

T-Mobile was announced as the new naming rights partner for the building in December, with the switch from Safeco Field becoming official Jan. 1. T-Mobile’s contract with the Mariners lasts for 25 years.

Check out the attached photo gallery in this post for a look at the changes that have been made thus far to the stadium.
