Stompers get two new opponents
The Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs has announced its 2018 schedule.
The league expanded to include the Napa Silverados and Martinez Clippers in the offseason, increasing the league season from 78 games to 80.
In addition to more games, the league expansion and new two-game series format allows fans to see a variety of teams in a single home-stand, and allows for broader competition among players.
The 2017 Pacific Association Champion Vallejo Admirals will begin the season at home. The league’s two new teams also begin the season at home on May 31. The regular season goes until Aug. 31.
The schedule offers a few highlights ahead of the release of each team’s special event calendars. A bit of league history will be made on June 7 in Martinez, when the two expansion teams play each other for the first time. On Fourth of July, fans can catch a Pacific Association game in Sonoma, Napa and Martinez.
The League Tryout Camp and Draft will be held on April 21 at Albert Park in San Rafael. Check each team’s respective websites for specific game time, field location, special event and ticketing information.
