Catch Mariners baseball on Root Sports!


No Major League Baseball team made more offseason moves than the Seattle Mariners this past winter.

The Mariners, who went 86-76 last season and finished three games back of the American League’s second and final postseason wild card spot, got younger, faster and more athletic.

Will new players like shortstop Jean Segura and outfielders Jarrod Dyson and Mitch Haniger help lead Seattle to its first playoff berth since 2001? There’s only one place to find out, as Root Sports is scheduled to carry all 162* of the Mariners’ regular-season games this year. Go to BendBroadband channels 20/620 HD for every Robinson Cano at-bat, every King Felix start and every diving stop by Kyle Seager.

Tune in early and stay late as Root Sports hosts 30-minute pregame and postgame shows for every Mariners game. And don’t miss “Mariners All-Access” on Sundays, which takes fans behind the scenes at Safeco Field.

Don’t have Root Sports? Upgrade to our Essentials TV package today!

Catch the 2017 season’s first “Mariners All-Access” show this Sunday at noon and 3 p.m. Then tune in to watch the Mariners play at the Houston Astros on Opening Day on Monday, April 3!

Oh, and make sure to pay attention to the blog in the upcoming weeks. We’ve got an announcement coming up we think all our sports fans will get excited about!

*Games can get picked up by national broadcasters.
