Note: I’m running low on photos. If you have any old MLB photos that might suit this game, please send ’em in to mystery At humbug .com.

5.  Berroa has been with the Royals since 2001, so it has to be since then. The Royals are wearing an atypical road jersey (black top). Not a lot of people in the stands (though it is the Royals) so it's probably not 2001 (when the M's won 116 games).

6.  August 16th, 2005.

Top 6th, runner on first. Angel Berroa at bat. Joel Pinero pitching.

The Nintendo DS ad in the background was the tip off, since narrows it down to either 2005 or 2006.

7.  I should add, it was the tip off once jkrometis figured out Berroa was batting.

8.  Looks like this one: August 16, 2005

*Berroa grounded out (third to second to first) [Stairs to

11.  We're always interested in completeness here, therefore:

Mariners players:
P Joel Pienero
C Yorvit Torrealba
1B Richie Sexson
SS Yuniesky Betancourt
3B Adrian Beltre

Royals Players
AB: Angel Berroa
1B: Matt Stairs
OD: Mark Teahen
1B Coach: Billy Doran (took over as 1B coach 6/20/05 as per this: http://tinyurl.com/espgx)
3B Coach: Luis Silvero
Umps:
HP: Brian O'Nora
2B: Gary Cederstrom
3B: Bill Welke
Some fraction of the 31425 in attendance.

Berroa is about to ground out, Third to Second to First, with Stairs safe at second.

13.  Why is there a large section of seats behind home plate empty?

14.  12 With the TV's up top it has to be a suite, doesn't it?

15.  [6] adrian beltre playing 3rd didn't tip you off, but a nintendo ad (which i can't even see) did?

16.  Actually, I've been in Safeco and I think that one might be taken from the walkway that circles the stadium, as those TV's are everywhere. It's a really nice field where you don't lose the game when waiting in line.

17.  15 I couldn't figure out if that was Beltre or Cirillo.
