Not since Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, and Edgar Martinez were lighting up pitchers in the 1990s has Seattle seen this much star power at its ballpark. Three generations of rock royalty, Jack WhiteEddie Vedder, and Paul Simon attended today’s Mariners-Rangers game at Safeco Field.

White just finished up a two-night residency at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre. During night two, he dedicated his performance of “Steady As She Goes” to Vedder, who was in attendance.

During his whirlwind tour, White has visited several different baseball stadiums, including Wrigley Field in Chicago, Comerica Park in Detroit, and Coors Field in Denver. He has yet to hit Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, and I can’t say I blame him.
