Home Grown Garden Gnomes, almost 20 nights of fireworks, a new hospitality area and special ticket mini-packages that begin at $243 per seat are just some of the features and promotions designed to warm the hearts of Sacramento River Cats fans in 2014.
After eight games on the road, the April 11 home opener features a matchup with Salt Lake City — accompanied by post-game fireworks and a season-schedule handout.
Throughout the season, Raley Field will be jumping with activity …
Home Plate Tailgate will be an area in which “fans have the opportunity to watch batting practice with all-you-can-consume food and alcohol.”
Bell Bros., Home Run Terrace and the K-Love Corner are new to 2014.
On five nights this summer, the Cats will give away garden gnomes — a new-wave answer to bobble heads. The five Oakland A’s players to be commemorated are Josh Donaldson (April 25), Sonny Gray (May 16), Eric Sogard (June 13), Brandon Moss (July 11) and Addison Russell (Aug. 1).
Wireless Wednesdays and Baseball Bingo each Monday have been added to the schedule.
Trying to keep up with all the changes? The River Cats are about to offer an app for iPhone and Android devices. With the app, fans can buy tickets, follow Sacramento live and participate in live Raley Field contests. Franchise officials will announce the launch date at www.rivercats.com.
This season, 74 percent of available seating for the River Cats is priced at $22 or less, with tickets starting at $8.
