Minor Characters

While the big Snakes are away, the little snakes keep ball-yard withdrawal at bay. The junior serpents are the Arizona Diamondbacks’ AAA farm teamers, the Tucson Sidewinders, who play just down the road a piece at Tucson Electric Park.

Beginning at 7 Monday, June 9, the Sidewinders host the Sacramento River Cats in a four-game set. Why not check it out? It’s a quick drive, the affordable tickets and concessions negate the cost of gas, and you get the guileless charm of open-air, minor-league ball.

Speaking of small-ball charm, River Cats? Who calls their team River Cats? It’s like we said: AAA rocks.
