The Scouting Report
Last summer, the 66ers overcame unlikely odds to win their first California League championship as an affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels. In the coming weeks, the team hopes to tap into that elite play and ascend the South Division standings. First baseman Wade Hinkle has lead the charge all season: his 45 RBIs in 72 games leads the team, and his .316 batting average is enough to make opposing pitchers consider a simpler life delivering newspapers. Aside from watching Wade and his teammates out on the field, 66ers fans can round out their game-day experience with special promotions, including an Angels-star garden gnome giveaway on July 19 and food and drink discounts during certain games the rest of the season.
Inland Empire 66ers
Baseball in San Bernardino dates back to 1899. More than a century's worth of history includes such team names as the Kittens and the Pioneers. It also includes a drought from 1950–1987, during which the city lacked enough dirt to build a baseball field. That drought ended when the San Bernardino Spirit began play as part of the California League.
In 1996, the Spirit became the Stampede, and in 2003, the Stampede became the 66ers, a name chosen in honor of the historic U.S. Route 66 that is famous for its hitchhiking umpires. Over the years, the 66ers organization has spent time as the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Mariners, Dodgers, and most recently, the Angels. The team has brought honor to each of its MLB partners, as it has won six California League championships since 1995.
