The Stockton Ports, a California League Single A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, play at Stockton Ballpark (officially), Banner Island Ballpark (unofficially) which was built in 2005 and seats over 5,0287. There are individual seats throughout the ball park and berm seating in right and right center fields. Attendance was 1,603. The Ports were playing the Visalia Rawhide and squeaked by them, winning 6-5. The two teams were tied 1-1 until the bottom of the 8th when the Ports scored 5 runs. But the Rawhide came back with 4 runs before being shut down in the top of the ninth. The field lines are RF-326', CF-389', LF-300'. The left field bull pen is in front of the left field seating but behind the homerun all. There are 4 suites on the 1st baseline. We were invited to look in one. Cost as we recall is $400 per game which includes 12 outside seats. The third row behind the home dugout is half circle tables sitting 4. There is a kid's play area in RF. We saw 5 scouts, four of them had video cameras on tri-pods. Several between inning activities. One was the announcement of the dirtiest car in the parking lot, which won a free car wash. But the unusual was announcing the cleanest car in the parking lot which won a car wash, also. The scoreboard looks like it is the original one from 2005. It really needs a rebuild as no player pictures or player information or other information usually seen is shown. The pitch speed display elsewhere also didn't work the night we visited. The mascot is Splash, shown throwing t-shirts in one picture. He carries a toilet seat with him and gets people to autograph it. On the concourse is a seat reaserved for missing in action military personnel. There are two pink seats in the back row for the Susan B. Komen Foundation. People can get their pictures taken in the big red inflated seat. On one wall is shown the previous major league affiliations of the Ports. One lap around the ballpark equals 1/3 mile. 2013--Affiliated with Oakland. Low A playing in the West League.
