River Cats meet the press – PHOTOS

The Sacramento River Cats hosted local media at Raley Field on Monday prior to an exhibition game against the Stockton Ports. Coaching staff and players gave interviews during the team’s batting and fielding practices.

Manager Steve Scarsone speaks with the media.
Recently appointed manager Steve Scarsone spoke about the challenges of coaching the MiLB team in the Oakland Atheltics organization. He said, "We’ve got some guys that are going to be trying some different positions, possibly, as the season goes on, depending on what the big club needs. We’re going to have guys that are going to come down during the season and guys that are going to go up. Every day is going to have its own special challenges. That’s how the game is."

"We’ve got some young guys that are excited about being here and we’ll get them calmed down a bit so they can have some success," he added.

The River Cats warm up on the new playing surface at Raley Field.
During the off-season, Raley Field saw a complete renovation. Grounds crews removed four inches of material and replaced the entire two and one-half-acre playing field area. The field looks ready for the River Cats’ home opener against Las Vegas this Thursday.

Game time is 7:05PM.
