Cornell committed suicide in his hotel room after a Soundgarden concert in Detroit on Wednesday night.
He was 52.
Music from Soundgarden, as well as Cornell’s other groups Audioslave, Temple of the Dog, and his solo work, will be on the Safeco Field speakers during the game, according to the Mariners VP of marketing.
The team took to Twitter before first pitch to announce the plans.
“Seattle lost a legend. Rest in peace, Chris Cornell,” the Mariners wrote along with a picture of the singer.
The Minnesota Twins gave Prince similar treatment when he died last April, playing his music before every at-bat.
Along with local bands Nirvana and Alice in Chains, Soundgarden played a big part in the grunge movement that threw Seattle into the national pop culture spotlight in the early 1990s.Read more at NYDailyNews
