The Scouting Report
The River Cats haven't suffered a losing season in a decade, and they don't seem to be breaking the streak anytime soon. The team once again holds down the top spot in the Pacific Coast League's Pacific Southern Division, anchored by catcher Stephen Vogt—who boasts one of the league's best batting averages—and second baseman Jemile Weeks, whose recent performances include a .800, two-run slugfest on June 7. As a team, they've hit a staggering amount of home runs this season, cracking more than 70 balls over the fences after writing their orders for take-out on each one.
Sacramento River Cats
With its views of the city skyline and Tower Bridge overlooking the Sacramento River, it's really no wonder why USA Today selected Raley Field as one of the country's top 10 minor league ballparks back in 2010. The park provides a picturesque frame for the action on its field, where the River Cats have all but dominated the Pacific Coast League this century.
Since moving from Vancouver to West Sacramento just before the 2000 season, the River Cats have claimed four PCL championships, and 11 division titles–including six straight from 2005–12. The team also won back-to-back Triple-A championships in '07-'08, around the same time trees began growing River Cats hats instead of fruit. As the top minor league affiliate of the Oakland A's, the River Cats have launched the careers of more than 200 big leaguers. Some of the game's biggest stars have emerged from that group, highlighted by a Cy Young and two Rookie of the Year award winners.
