At one time, Safeco Field in Seattle drew nothing but sellout crowds, a wall of Mariners teal.

On Monday, another colour swamped the green seats.

One of blue.

Blue Jays fans arrived for the opening game of a three-game series like a flash mob of blue. They assembled themselves 10-10 deep behind the Jays third-base dugout before the game and by the time the first pitch was thrown, they had completely swamped the hometown crowd.

Highly vocal they started a hand-clapping ?"Let's Go Blue Jays" prior to the opening pitch and were on their feet and screaming as Rajai David led off the game with a solo home run.
