OAKLAND -- The "Supreme Court" will return to Safeco Field on Thursday, April 11, when Felix Hernandez makes his home debut against the Rangers.

The Mariners announced Monday that the first 25,000 fans at Hernandez's Safeco season debut will receive the free King Felix T-shirt and commemorative "K" card that normally are limited to 1,200 fans for the King's Court section down the left-field line at his starts.

The Supreme Court debuted last year in Hernandez's first start after he threw his perfect game against the Rays and the result was a Safeco Field that looked like a sea of yellow supporters.

Hernandez will start twice on the opening road trip -- Monday night against the A's in the season opener at 7:07 p.m. in Oakland and Saturday in Chicago against the White Sox. So his first home appearance will be April 11 against the Rangers.

Special ticket prices for the game are $10 for all View Level seats and $25 for select Main Level, Terrace Club and Outfield Reserved seats. Tickets for the game are on sale now without service charge at the Safeco Field Box Office and Mariners Team Stores. They can also be purchased online at mariners.com and by phone at 1-888-732-4487.

"The first Supreme Court on Aug. 21, to celebrate Felix's perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays, created such a special atmosphere in the ballpark that we wanted to do it again to celebrate Felix's first start of the season at Safeco Field, and to celebrate that he will be in a Mariners uniform for years to come," said Kevin Martinez, the Mariners vice president of marketing.
