Raley Field and the River Cats announced today that they will again open their Triple-A baseball field in West Sacramento to high school baseball teams across the region this spring.
Raley Field will host 17 junior varsity and varsity doubleheaders - 34 total games - scheduled to begin March 2 and concluding with an all-star showcase game on June 2.
The team also announced that two college games are scheduled at Raley Field: Sacramento State will play Western Athletic Conference rival Fresno State on March 26 (6 p.m.); and longtime Division II rivals Chico State and Sonoma State will play April 28 (5:30 p.m.).
There is no charge to attend the high school games, and parking is free as well. The participating prep teams, however, have an opportunity to sell River Cats tickets to family, friends and their respective communities with proceeds going to the schools' baseball programs.
