Safeco Field doesn’t have any close RV parks—the stadium is located in downtown Seattle (in Pioneer Square) next to CenturyLink Field.

Best nearby camping: Glen Rouge Campground
Glen Rouge is the only campground within the city limits of Toronto. But even with its convenient location, the urban park is quiet with scenic wooded sites on the banks of the Rouge River. The campground is just down the street from the Toronto Zoo, and 20 minutes from Roger Centre.

I hear what you are saying about East St. Louis, but we have stayed at Casino Queen a number of times. The RV park is surrounded by barbed wire fencing and patrolled by casino security. It is very convenient to the Arch, the ball park and other St. Louis attractions.
It is a big parking lot, and not much of a camp ground, but we have always felt safe there and enjoyed the easy access to the attractions.
You do have to drive through East St. Louis a short ways to get there, and the roads are atrocious.
I will also add that every time we camped there were many high-end motorhomes there as well, so others must feel safe there as well.
For Seattle, Tall Chief in Fall City would be a better park to go see a ball game – I-90 comes out just about at the ballfields. Lake Pleasant, while nice, is way north and traffic is not easy going through Seattle.
