On April 11, 1969, 17,150 fans show up at Sicks' Stadium to watch the first Major League baseball game played in Seattle. The Seattle Pilots win their game against the Chicago White Sox, 7-0.
Construction at Sicks' Stadium, originally a Minor League ballpark, progressed up to and during the game. The scoreboard was installed the night before, and some fans had to wait outside while their benches were being installed.
Pitcher Gary Bell only gave up 10 hits, causing excited fans to rush the mound after the game.
The Seattle Pilots remained in Seattle only one season before moving to Milwaukee and becoming the Milwaukee Brewers.
