Family baseball fun with Redding’s Colt 45s

Baseball season in Redding has begun again. If you are a fan of this sport, you will already know that. Our family loves playing and watching baseball so we’re all very excited about the new season. I’ve always been a baseball fan, even from a young age. I remember my parents bought me a pair of team baseball pants and a baseball so that I could join the local team. I had such great fun, however now that I’m older, I definitely prefer watching baseball to playing it! What better way to begin the season than to watch college basketball players show their town what they can do. If you like playing baseball yourself, that can make for even more fun than watching! If you’re looking to improve your baseball skills, take a look at these Homerun techniques! Soon everyone will be watching you in a stadium get an impressive homerun. If you have been following this sport for a while now, you may be someone who would be interested in checking out companies such as FanDuel, to start playing Baseball virtually. With the rise of technology, this was going to happen sooner or later. Whether you choose to take on players across the country or your friends, you can become part of a team. Plus, you can even win points, just like the real game!

On the pitch, Tiger Field has served Redding now for 91 years, and currently hosts our Colt 45s. We attended last night’s game and had a blast! From the Redding Colt 45s website:

“Every summer college baseball players from across the country come to Redding for two months of intense competition in a minor league-like atmosphere.”



C458I’ve never photographed a baseball game, so that was really fun. Tiger Field is very clean, and the food was great. The lovely Karry had a prime rib sandwich prepared by none other than our friend Cal De Mercurio. Not surprisingly, we saw lots of friends here. Here are some images.

On this perfect weather night, the home team won by a comfortable margin over their opponent Santa Rosa Rosebuds. I saw a lot of good sportsmanship and spirited baseball. It’s cliche to say we were all winners last night, but so true.

Pro tip: Don’t park too near the gate, unless you don’t mind your car catching the occasional foul ball.

91 years of baseball. It’s Really Redding.
