Are you ready for some postSEAson baseball in Seattle?!

The Mariners will have home-field advantage in a playoff game for the first time in 21 years this weekend when they take on the Houston Astros in the American League Division Series (ALDS).

The team is guaranteed at least one home game at T-Mobile Park during the best-of-five series, which is Game 3 on Saturday. But the Mariners are facing an uphill battle and will need to win the remaining ALDS games or be knocked out of the playoffs.

If the Mariners win Saturday, they will play Game 4 at T-Mobile Park on Sunday at 12:07 p.m. Game 5, if necessary, will be back in Houston on Monday at 2:07 p.m.

All main T-Mobile Park gates usually open 90 minutes before the first pitch. However, Mariners Senior Director of Experiential Marketing Mandy Lincoln told KING 5 that gates will open 2.5 hours before the first pitch Saturday.

Lincoln said the team ordered 45,000 rally towels for the sold-out crowd, and pregame festivities with pyrotechnics and other surprises for fans are planned throughout the game, too.

The National Anthem before Saturday’s game will be performed by Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready.

From food options to parking and everything in between, here’s what you need to know if you're heading to T-Mobile Park to cheer on the Mariners this weekend.

Just don’t forget your rally shoes and good vibes, Mariners’ fans. Playoff baseball is back in Seattle:
