Sugar Land Skeeters Open Season on April 26

Season Opens April 26 against York.

Yesterday I had to drive over to the groomers at Man’s Best Friend on the west side to pick up one of our dogs and I also  found these little season schedule packets for the new Sugar Land Skeeters.

Playing in their inaugural season as members of the independent Atlantic League, Sugar Land opens their 70-game home schedule against York (PA) at 7:05 PM on Tuesday, April 26th at their new venue off 90-A at Highway 6 on the south side, and just north of the Southwest Freeway (I-59), at a place now called Constellation Field.

Modestly priced group and season tickets are now on sale online at http://sugarlandskeeters.com

Individual game tickets will be available, starting March 17th.

Telephone orders and further information is available at 281.240.4487.

It should be a lot fun. Skeeters Manager Gary Gaetti was a bright and talented player for both the Twins and Cardinals and he also spent time as the batting coach for the Houston Astros after his playing days ended. On the public relations side, another former big leaguer and Astros batting coach, Deacon Jone, is keeping the fires of enthusiasm stoked and popping fire for the new Skeeters.

The Atlantic League includes clubs from the seven eastern cities and areas of Bridgeport, Camden, Lancaster, Long Island, Somerset, Southern Maryland, and York – in addition to our western expansion club in Sugar Land.

It’s not the big league game, but it’s baseball that plays out at modest prices in a brand new open air family-oriented ballpark down in Sugar Land. That sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Hope to see some of the rest of you there too.

    Check again. Bill. You said the Skeeters play a 70-game schedule. I think the Atlantic League plays around 120 games.

    I will be there if you sing Sugar sugar by the Archies during the 7th inning stretch.
