When Felix Hernandez takes the mound at Safeco Field for his September 13 start against the Oakland Athletics, Safeco Field will be blacked out for "Night Court."
Instead of the usual bright yellow T-shirts for the King's Court special seating sections, the first 35,000 fans through the gates of the ballpark will receive a special black T-shirt to commemorate King Felix's start.
The King's Court cheering section started in 2011. The popularity has grown over the years and on some occasions it is extended to multiple sections including the Upper Court (the Terrace Club), the High Court (seating in the 300 Level), and the Supreme Court, when the whole ballpark is converted to the King's Court for Felix's first home start of the season.
