Baseball officially got its name in 1921; the year smooth rubber bases replaced the hungry piranha pits of survivor ball. Enjoy the game's modern iteration: for $8, you get two tickets to any Saskatoon Yellow Jackets home game in July (up to a $16 value). Check the schedule for available dates and times.
New head coach Frank Gonzales assembled the ball slingers and bat swingers of the 2011 Saskatoon Yellow Jackets with hopes of dominating the Western Major Baseball League. Behold the stick-ball battle from seats at Cairns Field, which holds more than 5,000 fans and is equipped with lighting for night games, a concession stand for hunger pains, and an open ceiling to accommodate oversized mascot heads. During Yellow Jackets games, ball fans feast eyes on an up-close glimpse of the future of professional baseball, as past players have gone on to pitch and hit in Major League organizations.
