The River Cats, who have claimed four Pacific Coast League championships in the past decade, continue to play under the lights at beautiful Raley Field, one of the top 10 minor-league parks, according to USA Today. As the 2011 Pacific Coast League playoffs enter the second round, the River Cats are properly stretched and psyched to face their Nebraskan nemesis. From the comfort of Delta Box, Senate Box, Gold Rush, or Solon Club seats, West Coast baseball fans can summon a Bronx cheer to crush the morale of the Omaha Storm Chasers or penetrate the umpire’s mask with telepathic waves of River Cats support. As the sun dips below the horizon during the seventh-inning stretch, fans can collect their druthers and salute the baseball spirits who came all the way from their cornfield to prove that not only do dreams come true, but they also come in the form of hot dogs.
