for Raley Field
Baseball has returned to Sacramento in 2000
with the newly formed Sacramento River Cats Triple-A baseball team.
Culminating months of preparation,
a parade down Capitol Mall kicked off groundbreaking
for Raley Field, home of the
Sacramento River Cats.
In October, 1999,
the principals behind
the Sacramento River Cats joined with
local governing officials, sponsors, and future
and former Sacramento players in breaking ground
for the field just west of the Tower Bridge.
