Back in September we told you about the scheduling conflict between U2 and the Florida Marlins-Seattle Mariners series, which necessitated moving the series from Pro Player Robbie Whatever Stadium. The options at the time were to play it in Puerto Rico or perhaps to move it to Vancouver or Seattle. Well, the decision has been made: the June 24-26 series will be played at Safeco Field.
Like that Jays-Phillies series last year, the Marlins will be designated the “home” team and the game will be played under NL rules. Unlike the Jays-Phillies series, there won’t be a ton of people who are inconvenienced by any of this, considering that they probably would have only drawn a few thousand fans a game anyway.
