West Sacramento, CA – The Sacramento River Cats are excited to announce the return of the San Francisco Giants to Sacramento for the third Exhibition Game between the River Cats and Giants. This can’t miss event is scheduled for Sunday, March 22.
“The fan response to the last two Exhibition Games was truly profound, so we are thrilled to have the opportunity to host the Giants again in 2020,” explained River Cats General Manager Chip Maxson. “Being able to bring the Giants of tomorrow together with household names like Buster Posey, Brandon Belt, and Brandon Crawford, all in our great sports city, is extremely special.”
The two previous River Cats and Giants Exhibition Games took place in March of 2016 and 2018 and included a fan fest, autograph session, and special merchandise to commemorate the occasion. These unique contests were played in front of capacity crowds, televised locally on CBS13/CW31, and featured fan favorites from both the Sacramento River Cats squad and the San Francisco Giants.
“Returning to Sacramento is something we’ve wanted to do since making our first trip there in 2016,” said Giants President & CEO Larry Baer. “Thanks to our partnership with the River Cats, our fan base in the Sacramento region continues to grow stronger and stronger every year and our young players gain invaluable experience on their path to the big leagues.”
