Join the Mariners Kids Club for Free

For families with children 14 years old or younger, the Mariners Kids Club is a fantastic free option. Members receive a Kids Club t-shirt, a membership badge with a lanyard, and a free ticket to a Mariners game. The perks continue throughout the season, including discounts and special promotions. You can sign up at or at Kids Club kiosks located in Sections 192 and 331 of the park. Remember, you need to renew the membership annually!

Want more info? Just head over to or swing by one of the Kids Club kiosks at Sections 192 and 331. Oh, and don’t forget to re-enroll every year – memberships from the previous year won’t carry over. We can’t wait to see you and your little sluggers at the game!

Kids Can Run Around The Bases!

On select game days, kids 14 and under get the thrilling chance to run around the bases, just like their favorite Mariners players. This post-game activity is a highlight for any young fan, so be ready to snap some quick pictures! To participate, head to the ramps near Section 120 towards the end of the game to line up. For our kids, running around the bases was their highlight for the whole week! 

The Run Around the Bases are usually Sunday home games, you can find these under the Promotion section when you buy tickets online. All kids 14 years old and younger can run around the bases on these special “run around the bases” game days. If your kid wants to run around the bases, make sure to line up around the 8th inning, as the lines get long! We went to line up after the game and ended up walking all the way up to the top of the stadium to the back of the line. Be sure to check out the Mariner’s Promotional Calendar to see which games give the kids a chance to run the bases. Note, that running the bases is a post-game activity, so be prepared to stay longer. But it’s definitely a blast!

Photo Ops with the Mariners Moose

Don’t miss out on meeting the beloved Mariners Moose! Stop by the Moose’s Den, across from the kiosk on the Main Level at Section 191, for a memorable photo. The Moose appears 30 to 90 minutes before the game and during the 2nd, 3rd, 7th, and 8th innings. It’s a perfect keepsake from your day at the park.
