The 2017 Promotional Schedule kicks off on June 6th with our traditional “Opening Day Pin” presented by Marin Subaru. We’ll have a great program of awards and special recognitions that you won’t want to miss.

On June 7th, we’ll be giving away a totally cool and distinctive looking t-shirt presented by our wine partner, Chronic Cellars. Then, on Saturday night, June 17th we’ll make history with our “Best Team on Grass” t-shirt sponsored by Scot Candell and Associates, famed medical marijuana attorneys. Not to be outdone, our friends at Alten Construction will be giving away a Pacifics jersey on Friday, July 21st.
