The Scouting Report
The Volcanoes claimed the Northwest League's South Division in the first half of the season with a 23–15 record, securing their spot in the 2013 playoffs. On August 8, they face off against the Everett AquaSox, first-half champions of the North Division with a matching 23–15 record, giving fans a chance to catch two playoff-bound clubs slugging it out a month before the post-season begins.
Baseball great Tommy John will make an appearance at Volcanoes Stadium for the game, greeting fans, posing for photos, and signing autographs. One of the all-time greatest left-handed pitchers, the four-time all-star's also known for the eponymous "Tommy John Surgery," a procedure famous for extending players' careers and giving doctors an excuse to chat about baseball.
In their 16-year history as the short season Class-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, the Volcanoes have been a venerable understudy to their Major League parent club, capturing the Northwest League’s Western Division title seven times and five Northwest League Championships. The Volcanoes' past rosters have seen some of the Giants’ top young stars slug and pitch their way to the big leagues and finally take the training wheels off of their gloves. Crowds of up to 5,000 voracious fans flow into Volcanoes Stadium, where the Lava Lodge Sports Bar, the Volcanotron video board, and a kids' playground join forces to offer a stacked lineup of off-the-field attractions.
