Felix to get 'Supreme Court' treatment in home debut

ANAHEIM -- Felix Hernandez will be greeted by a Safeco Field "Supreme Court" gathering when he makes his first home start of the season on Friday, April 11 against the A's.

The Mariners have turned the "King's Court" down the left-field line into a Safeco Field tradition for Hernandez's home starts in the past three seasons, and the "Supreme Court" is a larger version, with the entire park turned into yellow-clad fans waving "K" cards.

The first 25,000 fans will receive a free yellow "Supreme Court" T-shirt and commemorative "K" card. Tickets will be specially priced at $12 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 at all Mariners Team Stores, and are also available online at mariners.com/felix and by phone at 1-888-732-4487.

The first "Supreme Court" was held on Aug. 21, 2012, to celebrate Hernandez's perfect game against the Rays and then was reconvened on his first Safeco Field start last year as well.
