Mommy & Me Day at Raley Field + 2011 Rivercats Season

April 11, 2011

If I had to choose my favorite thing about spring and summer, it would be longer days. BUT, my second favorite thing is without a doubt, baseball. Whether it be the San Francisco Giants, the Sacramento Rivercats, or our neighborhood little league, give me a seat in the bleachers with a hot dog and a beer (iced tea if I’m at a little league game, of course) and I am one happy mama. I can’t wait for my little guy to be old enough to play tee ball. In the meantime, we love it when we can get our fix out at Raley Field! You have plenty of chances to do the same, starting this month.

Mommy and Me Day is coming up on Wednesday, April 20 and again on Wednesday, June 15 from 10AM to 1PM. You and your little ones have a chance to get out on the field and play games, enjoy snacks, and run the bases. My just-over-1-year old and I attended last year and since then the Rivercats have learned a thing or two. Here are a couple of tips to make your experience that much better:

  • Fill out the waiver before you go. Click HERE to get that. You’ll also need the pre-registration form which you can get HERE.
  • Bring your own snacks and/or entertainment. There was quite a line to get in last year and people got there early. Even having the waivers completed in advance, there will probably still be a bit of a wait to get into the field.
  • Don’t expect too much. There were some coloring and game stations, and kids could run around on the field, in the dugouts, and behind the backstop, so that was cool. Dinger will be there, but it would be even cooler if there were some players there though! (Hint, hint, Rivercats.)

If you go, email us some pictures and your thoughts! We love getting feedback to pass on to other moms. Mommy & Me Day is *FREE* and is for children aged 6 and younger.

In addition to Mommy & Me Day, the Rivercats have a host of home games to attend. The Sunday afternoon games are our favorite, but if your kids are up to a weeknight evening, why not spend a few bucks for a grass seat and enjoy the Delta breeze when the nights get warm.

River Cats Mommy & Me Day

August 9, 2010

Here is my little guy at April’s Mommy & Me Day at Raley Field (pardon the text on the picture, it was from my own personal blog). There were a ton of mommies and kiddos at the last one and the line to get in was pretty long. Then, once they opened the gates, moms had to fill out a waiver before they could enter. It was honestly a little disorganized. But wait, there is good news! The River Cats have learned their lesson since that first Mommmy & Me Day and have another (more organized) one scheduled for Wednesday, August 11.

Head over to Raley Field from 10AM to noon with your kids, under the age of 6, to come out enjoy a day on the field.  Activities will include running the bases, catch, tee-ball, soccer, arts and crafts, cartoons on the video board, and other fun activities. Parents and children will also enjoy snacks, beverages, and a visit from Dinger, the mascot. Kids will receive a River Cats &  Raley’s “gift pack” while supplies last (last time mine included a *FREE* Merlino’s freeze coupon). This time there are even waivers available for you to download and print before the event. Click HERE for those and avoid the long wait to get in. Dads are welcome too!

Raley Field is located at 400 Ballpark Drive in West Sacramento and for more information click HERE or call 916.376.4676.

We’ll see you there!

P.S. You have until Thursday night to enter to win a $25 McCormick & Schmick’s gift card! Click HERE and comment to enter!

Walk for Wishes + Walk ‘N Rock for Kids

May 18, 2010

Are you tired of me talking about 5K’s and fun runs and jog-a-thons yet? What if I told you there was one you could participate in while wearing PAJAMAS?! Possibly my favorite active, family friendly activity ever.

Walk for Wishes: Pancakes and Pajamas is a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation that takes place on Saturday, May 22 from 9AM to 12PM. There is no minimum needed to fundraise and no registration fee. Just collect donations and join in the fun! The walk begins at the West Steps of the Capitol downtown.

For more information click HERE or call 916.437.0206 or to register click HERE.

Saturday the 22nd won’t work for you? How about Sunday the 30th?

Walk ‘N Rock for Kids is a fundraising walk and benefit concert to support local children’s charities. 

The event will kick off with a morning 5K walk involving families, local businesses, walk teams and supporters. Participants will walk and raise funds on behalf of our 2010 Nonprofit Partners and Nonprofit Associates. The morning will be filled with music at Raley Field and along the route. After the walk, enjoy entertainment, interactive booths, kids activities, more music, food and fun! There is NO FEE to register before 5/22/2010, and all funds raised will go directly to the children’s charity you register to walk in support of.

Registration begins at 7AM and the walk begins at 8AM. Raley Field is located at 400 Ballpark Drive and for more information click HERE or to register click HERE.

We’ll see you there!
