The Scouting Report
On July 20, the Rainiers head into the middle stretch of a 12-game homestand when they clash against the Salt Lake Bees. A successful series looks to be within Tacoma’s reach. The Bees were 16–32 on the road heading into the All-Star break, possibly due to players getting anxious that they may have left the oven on back home. As the action unfolds on-field, fans on the party deck can enjoy unlimited barbecue, wine, beer, and soda during a 90-minute barbecue.
For decades, the city of Tacoma was the minor league home of MLB teams from across the country. It hosted affiliates of the San Francisco Giants, the Chicago Cubs, and even the New York Yankees for one season. In 1995, the Seattle Mariners took over Tacoma’s team and instantly inherited the long-time organizational name, the Rainiers. The alliance has seen much success over the years, including a Pacific Coast League championship in 2010, a title the club had to win on the road while Cheney Stadium was groggy from anesthesia as it endured drastic renovations.
Those renovations earned the facility a “2011 Renovation of the Year” award from Ballpark Digest. Once dubbed the “100-Day Wonder” thanks to its hasty construction before the 1960 season, Cheney Stadium features an iconic 75-foot wooden exterior façade. Inside, the stadium now boasts such modern amenities as luxury suites, a restaurant, and a grass berm along right field. Despite all the updates, though, the stadium has preserved its epic 29-foot tall batter’s eye in centerfield, which sits a distant 425 feet—or, the equivalent of 5,437 sunflower seeds—from home plate.
