Great Night at Raley Field with the Sacramento River Cats!
Just when things seem blue here in Sacramento, something meaningful and fun comes along to pick us up... Even in the sweltering Sacramento heat, the crowd was jubilant at Raley Field on Saturday night as the Sacramento River Cats came out in pink jerseys for Swing for the Cure, benefiting breast cancer awareness and research.
Sacramento started with a bang early with a run in the first and second innings in rolling to a 5-2 victory in front of River Cat fans at Raley Field.
During the game, the team held a silent auction for the game-worn pink jerseys, which were autographed by the players and given to the highest bidders after the game (proceeds went to Komen for the Cure). When the game was over, out from center field walked our River Cats in their signed pink jerseys to a roaring round of applause. The fireworks started and I sat smiling at how great our city is!
