The Scouting Report
In early April, the Rainiers will kick off a new season with an opening-weekend series against the Albuquerque Isotopes. Last year, a near-record number of fans watched the club defend Cheney Stadium against Pacific Coast League rivals trying to uncover the treasure buried beneath the pitcher’s mound. Last season also saw several players etch their names into the Rainiers’ history books, including Miguel Montero, who finished near the top of the league in just about every major batting category. While scouting for the next breakout star during opening weekend, fans can also enjoy all the perks the stadium has to offer—including fireworks after the game on April 8.
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.
