Thanks to all who came out to support Cal and ECYB! For those that missed the game, here is the Cal schedule: http://www.calbears.com/schedule.aspx?schedule=509
The California baseball team invites ECYB to come out for a game on Friday, March 17, at to see the Bears take on Oregon in their Pac-12 opener. The discounted tickets are only $7 per person. Cal baseball will put on a pre-game chalk talk and "high-five tunnel" on the field just for our players (6th grade and under due to NCAA recruiting rules). To purchase your tickets, please click following PayPal link: PAYPAL.
Tickets need to be ordered by Sunday, .
We hope that ECYB teams will use the Cal game as a chance to get the kids together for a fun social event and help them bond as a team. The kids also get to see their friends on other teams after a long offseason. We had over 230 people attend the Cal vs. Purdue game last year. The Cal athletic department challenged us to break the all-time baseball group record of 375 tickets set by ALameda LL. Friends and family are welcome to attend.
Game: Cal vs. Oregon
Price: $7 (advance purchase only)

With 11 seniors gone to graduation and seven players earning selection in the Major League Baseball first-year player draft (including Daulton Jefferies as the 37th overall pick), the Golden Bears now turn to a roster that includes 20 new players as the 2017 season is starting. The Bears will rely on heavily on its incoming class to fill the void created by the departure of so many important pieces of the 2016 puzzle. Cal fans will get a chance to get to know the newcomers as the season rolls along.
Historic Evans Diamond is an awesome place to catch a ball game, especially night under the lights. It has a nice beer garden area as well as food booths.
