The last couple of years, my daughter and I have visited Raley Field during their “Mommy & Me Days”, and we both had such a great time that she continues to talk about “Dinger” the River Cats Mascot and how she wants to go back and visit the baseball field.
Luckily for us, the Sacramento River Cats will be hosting another FREE “Mommy and Me Day” on Wednesday May 1st from 10am- 1pm. If you did not get a chance to attend the Mommy and Me event last year- we highly recommend making the time to take your little ones out to the baseball field. Parents and their children (Under the age of 6) can spend the day out on the baseball field playing different games and participating in activities such as: tee-ball, soccer, arts and crafts, and much more.
Last time they had Dinger the Mascot visiting with all the children, games with parachutes, balls and everything that the pre-school aged children love! There will be free snacks and drinks provided while supplies last, and they will also have additional food and beverages to purchase.
If you are planning on attending this event, please go on their website and fill out the mandatory waivers and bring them with you to the field. This will help in having to wait in the long lines…. And since we know that children are not the most patient little beings- this may help avoid a spontaneous “melt-down”.
Make sure you don’t forget your sunscreen (since you will be down on the field), camera for those great shots of your little ones “sliding” into home-plate, and plenty of energy for a fun filled day!
