Additional Notes

Bakersfield Blaze Minor League baseball games are spectacular sporting events to attend if you are ever in the Bakersfield area of California's Central Valley. The Blaze play in the California league and are currently affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds.

The stadium for this team is Sam Lynn Ballpark, named after a former local owner of a Coca-Cola bottling company, and is a premiere and historical ballpark. This stadium has been in operation since the forties and can accommodate over 3,500 fans. This ballpark is one of only two in professional baseball that has the batter facing west and this presents challenges for batters and umpires in the setting sun. This requires games to typically start later than most other teams. Although the games often don't begin until around 8:00 pm, this provides a unique experience for many baseball fans.

This stadium is former home to professional baseball teams of the Dodgers, Indians, and others. Former Bakersfield Blaze players include Mike Piazza, Pedro Martinez, Eric Karros, and Tommy Hunter. The team has season and group ticket pricing and has a kids club, birthday party accommodations, and outing picnics. These extra services makes attending Bakersfield Blaze games especially fun for the entire family and special occasions. Ken Griffey Sr. is the current manager of team and the father of the legendary professional baseball player, Ken Griffey Jr.

Bakersfield Blaze Minor League baseball games hosts plenty of fun and entertainment for the entire family. The mascot for the team is Heater the Dragon, a kid-favorite. They have a great balance of history and veteran management and fresh young talent and accommodations for kids and the youth, bridging generational gaps. The Blaze is affiliated with the Elmore Sports Group and sponsors include Yellow Book and Goodwill.

There has been controversy and discussion about the team possibly relocating to another site and possibly a league outside of California so local fans should attend as many home games as possible now while they still can. The Bakersfield Blaze are a fun sports club to watch and attending evening baseball games at this historic location is special.
