Strip clubs and baseball: Dancers don’t belong so close to Safeco

Safeco doesn’t need strip club neighbors, neither does Sodo Editor, The Times: I agree with your rationale in your editorial about the strip club moving near Safeco Field [“Safeco Field’s raunchy neighbor,” Opinion, July 1]. Children walk along First Avenue to go to Seahawks, Sounders and other Qwest Field events in addition to Safeco events because parking is…

Ken Griffey Jr. returns to the Mariners

Not the budding talent we need I cannot fathom why the Seattle Mariners would want Ken Griffey Jr. back [“The kid comes homes,” page one, Feb. 19]. He left years ago for a greener field.

Mariners clubhouse

Take ownership, don’t blame the true professional I was a batboy for the Seattle Mariners in 2001 when the team was stocked with true professionals, leading to a great clubhouse environment. Ichiro was no exception. His amazing work ethic and approach to the game fit right in with the rest of that 116-win team. A lot of…
