The sun was out and the Mariners were at home, with a winning record under their belt. Things were bright in Sodo on Friday, opening day at Safeco Field.

We hit the streets with camera in hand to capture some of the beautiful faces of Mariners fandom, and asked them what their hopes for the season were.

Renee Melinger: “I’m just hoping we don’t end up last place in the AL West. I’m setting the bar low so I don’t get my hopes crushed like last year.”

Jeremy Fleck (dad): I’m hoping we’ll make the playoffs and I’m excited to see Kyle Seager do work.

Colton Fleck (son): I hope Kyle Seager wins.

​Chris Hutcherson: “I’m hoping we’ll make the playoffs and I’m excited to see if Cano does good this year.”

​Eric Cervantes: “I wanna see Robinson Cano hit home runs here at home like they are at away games.”

Colton Swanson: “Everything. To see if Cano can come back after last year and if Cruz can somewhat match what he did last year.”
