Junior never played at Safeco, and as far as I know never even took batting practice there as he was traded right before it opened.


Safeco opened mid-season 1999. He played half a season there. Trust me. ;-)


Really? Man I have completely forgotten about that. I'm sorry for doubting you. :-o

No worries. :-)

I was there on Safeco's opening day, and I remember Junior being there. I also remember the new stadium and it's "HR restrictiveness" as being one rumor as to why he wanted out. But that's neither here nor there. :-)

I think it helps not to be the Royals as well
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I've heard if you open the roof slightly, it creates a vortex that just sucks the balls over the fences.

Guaranteed ding-dongs.
