SEATTLE (AP) — Inside the suites of Safeco Field are the typical, palatial amenities that come with a premium experience at a ballpark: private entries, leather seats, a food spread with numerous culinary options and drinks galore. The Mariners and hometown neighbor Amazon have partnered to put the Alexa voice-activated operating system in every suite at Safeco Field. [...] you might learn that people don't order food as much as they order drinks, or something like that and working with these guys tweak the experience based on the stuff they want to deliver for their guests. Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks is now a lot simpler than screaming through the crowd at the vendor walking the aisles or waiting in line for concessions, at least for those that have paid for the premium experience of sitting in one of the Safeco Field suites. By giving a basic command line — "Hey Alexa, ask the Mariners ..." — the system is integrated into the room. Asking for the TV to be changed, requesting the server to stop by, or even playing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," is as simple as making the verbal request. There are some special features that can be requested and are only accessible to suite holders in the ballpark and go beyond the typical amenities, including a high-above camera shot of home plate and one from behind the pitcher.
