Does your beer league need a new dugout that looks like a shipping container with benches and a bat rack? Are you nostalgic towards baseball at Seattle’s Kingdome? Specifically towards the opposing teams? We have a deal for you today. You can get on eBay right now and spend $7,500 for the entire visitor’s dugout from the Kingdome. Seriously, all of it. Yep, you even get those mall benches. You’re officially on your way towards building a MLB franchise.
According to the seller:
This dugout was on the 1st base side in the Kingdome. The visitor dugout consists of five individual sections. Each section is between 13 and 18 feet long and 8 feet high and 7 feet deep. One of the sections has the doorway that lead into the visitor clubhouse. There is also the section that contains the helmet rack, bat racks and phone lines to the bullpen and press box. The tubes that held bats where stolen while this was in storage. It is a common pvc pipe that can be replaced. This section also contains a area for the tv cameras.
As you can see from the photos, the area for a TV camera is nothing more than a box cutout for the camera to fit through. The dome has been gone since March 2000 so you can imagine the benches aren’t in the best shape. Make offers accordingly.
The seller also owns the home dugout but is piecing it out. Just the bat rack and where Lou Pinella sat will run you $3,000. Buy the entire home dugout for $12,000.

The Seattle Mariners were all over ESPN SportsCenter this weekend. Unfortunately, for the baseball team from the Pacific Northwest, it was for all the wrong reasons. Phillip Humber threw a perfect game Saturday highlighting the White Sox’s three-game sweep of the Mariners. After a competitive series against the Indians, the Mariners did not have a lead on the White Sox until Sunday...
The Seattle Mariners are in the midst of a rebuilding season. Most of the dead weight veterans have made way for the youth movement with the exception of Miguel Olivo.
The Seattle Mariner catcher is batting .111 and needs to get things going at the dish sooner than later. Olivo who is playing his second season of a two-year $7million contract, has had only two extra base hits in...
Fox never showed a different angle of Brendan Ryan's final swing/checked swing, the swing/checked swing that completed Philip Humber's perfect game. This YouTube video purports to show the final pitch from the first-base side.
Well, if this is legit, that settles that, am I right? It's clearly [muffle muffle muffle]
Our weekly Monday statistical look at the good and the bad in the Seattle Mariners system from the past seven days. Some top prospects performed poorly while some less talked about guys shined during this past week of minor league action.
We learned many things from Jim Joyce, Armando Galarraga and the infamous Imperfect Game of June 2, 2010. We learned that throwing beer bottles at the wall may cause significant DAMAGE (to the beer bottle, possibly the wall too). We learned that styling one’s facial hair after the Pringles man cannot disguise MISTAKES. And we also learned that the best way to avoid controversy...
Anyone in need of a dugout? Well, you can get the best of the best! That’s right, a Major League dugout! The original Seattle Mariners Visitor dugout from the Seattle Kingdome is for sale on Ebay. This is a tobacco chewer’s dream! Absolutely GREAT for spitting!!!
Alex Liddi had a career-high three hits, including a solo homer, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 7-4 on Tuesday night.
Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila homered for the Tigers, but it wasn't enough to overcome an early 4-0 deficit. Michael Saunders drove in three runs for Seattle, which snapped a four-game losing streak.
Jason Vargas (3-1) pitched six innings for...
ON The road again…
The Seattle Mariners (7-10) look for a welcome change of scenery and a change of fortune on their stop in the Motor City. Detroit (10-6) finished 1st in the A.L. Central Division last season and are slated to end up there again.

Brendan Ryan's checked-swing on the final pitch Saturday. Did he go around? Nobody knows because there is no definition of a checked-swing in the rulebook.
The perfect game pitched by Phil Humber should have an asterisk attached because of the blown check-swing strike call by umpire Brian Runge on the last out of the game.
Of course baseball does not question any of these types...
Phil Humber tossed the 21st perfect game in MLB-history defeating the Seattle Mariners, 4-0 on Saturday. The Chicago White Sox right-hander threw only 96 pitches in retiring all 27 batters to face him.
Humber became the third pitcher in team history to throw a perfect game and first MLB pitcher since Roy Halladay in 2009 to accomplish the feat.
The ninth-inning had plenty of...
