"Welcome to Safeco Field, home of the Mariners"
Much of SODO (Seattle's industrial district SOuth of DOwntown) occurs between South 1st and 4th Avenues. The biggest attractions in SODO are Safeco Field, home of the Mariners baseball team, and Quest Field, the Seahawks' playground. Edgar Martinez Dr. was named for a former Seattle Mariner and runs along the south side of Safeco Field between the stadium and the stadium's parking lot. To the east of the stadium, the road goes over 4th Ave. S. and if you're unlucky enough to be stopped at the light on that overpass, it's a pretty scary adventure. Large trucks cross the bridge constantly and you can feel the motion of the bridge with each passing car. It's a bit unnerving, but hopefully the city planners learned something from the construction of the Alaska Way Viaduct and it's a little more stable. We can hope. Other than the stadium, the street has nothing further to offer. However, during a game, the southeast corner of 1st and Edgar Martinez Way hosts a beer garden for game ticket-holders.
