Fueled by a scorching start to the 2012 season, the reigning Pacific Coast League Southern Division champion River Cats pounce on opposing pitches during five early-season skirmishes at Raley Field. As the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, the River Cats have treated fans to year after year of accomplishments while helping launch the careers of more than 200 big leaguers, including 2002 Cy Young Award winner Barry Zito and current sluggers Andre Ethier and Carlos Gonzalez. This summer, the club will chase its fifth Pacific Coast League title behind a restocked roster of budding talent, such as outfielder Michael Taylor. After clubbing 16 homers in 2011, Taylor has continued his ascension to stardom this spring, leading the team in hits and RBIs and exhibiting his need for speed by stealing a pair of bases before autographing them in motor oil.
Named one of the top ten minor-league parks by USA Today in 2010, Raley Field accompanies each ballgame with views of Tower Bridge and the city skyline, where supportive skyscrapers often paint “Go ‘Cats!” across their bare bellies. Nightly promotions help energize already juiced crowds, including on Tuesdays, when kids eat for free.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon’s mobile app.
