The Seattle Mariners are celebrating pitcher Felix Hernandez Tuesday when he returns to the mound for the first time since throwing a perfect game.

Felix pitched a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays last week in front of a home crowd at Safeco Field.

In honor of the milestone, the Mariners will be giving away bright yellow "King of Perfection" t-shirts to the first 34,000 fans (in honor of #34, worn by Felix Hernandez).

Lower field field, dubbed the "King's Court" when Felix pitches, will be expanded to the "Supreme Court" and fans will be given commemorative K cards.

Tuesday's game is against the Cleveland Indians. Game time is 7:10 p.m.

Felix was named MLB's American League Player of the Week on Monday.

His perfect game was the first in Mariners history and only the 23rd in baseball history.

Felix Hernandez won the American League Cy Young Award in 2010.
