It was Lee Person’s 10th Opening Day. It was Jon Barnett’s first.

Judging their reaction, it was tough to tell who the rookie was.

"There’s a ton of people," said Barnett, a 30-year-old Monroe resident. "It’s got a playoff atmosphere to it."

The two chowed down on garlic fries in the concourse outside their seats on the third-base line. Barnett wore a Seahawks hat. Person sported a Mariners jacket.

"I love it," Person said. "I never miss it."
