It’s time for the three Bs: brats, beer, and baseball. This summer’s season is packed full of games and events. From fun initiatives like Copa de la Diversión and Sunday Fundays, the summer is just heating up for the River Cats.

About the team

The River Cats began as the affiliate team for the Oakland Athletics from 2000-2015, and have served the San Francisco Giants since. The River Cats led Minor League Baseball in crowd attendance 10 out of their first 11 seasons, including their first nine seasons in a row.

The team plays at Sutter Health Park. Want to get up close and personal? One seat in the park sits just 58 ft away from home plate.
