What better way to spend time with family and friends on a summer evening than by listening to live music - especially outdoors!?

Take me out to the ballgame -or better yet- take yourself, your family, and your friends! The Stockton Ports have been entertaining baseball fans since 1941, and they have been doing it at Banner Island Ballpark since the waterfront playing field opened in April 2005. Whether it is in the seats near the dugout or on a blanket on the grassy bluff areas, it’s fun for the whole family! There are many reasons to root for the Stockton Ports, too! Find the next home game and start planning your outing with the entire family this summer!
