As the Triple-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners and 2010 Pacific Coast League champions, the Tacoma Rainiers are primed to charge through the second-to-last homestand of the 2012 season with eight early-August games at Cheney Stadium. This summer has seen the emergence of several soon-to-be big leaguers, including all-around offensive threat Luis Antonio Jimenez, whose 13 home runs in 86 games prove that stuffing steak bites into the barrel of the bat really does increase slugging percentages. Conversely, speedy centerfielder Trayvon Robinson displays a mixture of power and agility, clubbing nine homers and stealing 19 bases over the course of 83 games.
Winner of the Ballpark Digest 2011 Renovation of the Year award, the revamped Cheney Stadium retains its iconic, 75-foot wooden façade while improving its innards with new luxury boxes and twice as many concessions stands compared to previous seasons. The now 52-year-old facility also features its landmark 29-foot tall batter’s eye in centerfield. And down the right-field line, a grassy berm invites fans to take a seat as they keep an eye out for foul balls and directionally challenged outfielders.
