Moved-in Safeco fences part of Mariners’ pitch to Napoli

SEATTLE — Moving in the fences at Safeco Field next season has become a key part of the sales pitch the Mariners are using with free agents. Early last week, the Mariners flew free-agent catcher Mike Napoli to Seattle, and one of the first things they did was give him a tour of Safeco Field and explain the planned realignment of the fences. Shorter fences in left-center are expected to help right-handed hitters like Napoli, 31, who the Mariners need as much for his power bat as the positions he plays.
