The Tacoma Rainiers, a Triple A affiliate of Seattle, play at Cheney Stadium which was built in 1960. As an older stadium it has good sight lines with no poles holding up the roof within the baselines. Seating is plastic seats, wooden seats, and bleachers with backs. There are party areas along both baselines in front of the bleachers and at the top of the 3rd base bleachers. There is a hot tub at the far end of the 3rd baseline. The Rainiers were playing the Albuquerque Isotopes and won 8-5. The box score was Isotopes R-5, H-8, E-0 and Rainiers R-8, H-12, E-2. The field lines are RF & LF-325', RC & LC-350'-385', and CF-a deep 425'. Today was used car drawing day. Three local car dealers gave away 3 half-way decent used cars. Rhubarb is the mascot and he has a new head this year. The regular fans are not happy with it. We thought his new nose made him look like a parrot with horns. Attendance on this sunny and low 70s day was 5,872. All the kids can run with Rhubarb as a between inning activity. They run from the outfield down the first baseline to first base and then out a gate by first base. The mural shows the uniforms of the different teams that the Tacoma team has been affiliated with since 1960. The light standards are from the San Francisco Seals stadium.
