But Ichiro isn’t at Harborview…

Connor Reilly was almost born at Safeco Field last year, so his parents thought an Opening Day ticket for the munchkin was fitting.

His parents, Tyler and Nicola Reilly of Seattle, held the 7-month-old child in the concourse between innings as he napped. On Aug. 28 last year, the couple was watching the Mariners play the Los Angeles Angels when Nicola went into labor.

"It was the first game of that series where, had they won, they would’ve tied up the division. But they went in the tank," Tyler said.

The losses – heartbreaking for Mariners fans – weren’t all bad.

"Hey," he laughs, "I got a kid out of the deal. And we didn’t miss any good baseball."
