Sometimes there is no better way to take advantage of a nice summer day than by taking in a baseball game. While the San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics are in action in the Bay Area, there are easier and cheaper ways to watch some baseball.

California Glory

Lodi is home to the California Glory, a collegiate summer team that plays at historic Tony Zupo Field. This will be the second year the Glory call Lodi its home.

The Glory play in the newly-established Far West League, which has 11 teams from around California and Oregon. Admission is $5 and children 9 and under are free.

Lodi has a long history of minor league and collegiate baseball teams, which proved to be the training grounds for numerous players who went on to play Major League Baseball.

The 2011 schedule has the Glory playing 20 games at Zupo starting June 4 and going through July 31.

Stockton Ports

The Stockton Ports are the double-A affiliate of the Oakland A’s and play their games at Banner Island Ballpark. Many future MLB players came from the Ports, including A’s starting pitcher Dallas Braden, who threw a perfect game in 2010. The Ports play their first home game on April 14 and their season continues through Sept. 5. For tickets or more information call 209-644-1900.

Sacramento River Cats

For baseball fans willing to venture a little further north, you can catch the Oakland A’s triple-A team, the Sacramento River Cats. The River Cats play their home games at Raley Field. Their season starts April 7 and goes through Sept. 5. Tickets range from $7-$42 per game. For more information or to buy tickets call 916-376-4700.
