The Stompers became the first co-ed professional baseball team since the 1950s when they signed pitcher Stacy Piagno and pitcher and outfielder Kelsie Whitmore in 2016. Later that year, Whitmore made history again as she formed one half of the first female battery in professional baseball history with catcher Anna Kimbrell. The Stompers' commitment to the advancement of women in baseball is in partnership with Virginia Dare, a Francis Ford Coppola winery.
To celebrate women in sports and the Stompers' place in women's baseball history, the Stompers want to hear from their fans. Fans can use the hashtag #MYSTOMPERSSTORY to share what Sonoma baseball means to them or a woman they know, or leave a comment on any of the Stompers social media sites. Stories will be featured on game day.
Sonoma faces the second-place Pittsburg Diamonds that night. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
Tickets are still available for Women in Sports Night here:
Get 20 percent off of your tickets for July 6 and merchandise online with promo code "THERELISH" thanks to the Relish, which serves up sports for female fans. Since women still make an average of 80 cents to the dollar every man makes, the Stompers and the Relish figured they deserve 80 percent of a baseball ticket.
The promo code is only redeemable online and does not apply to jerseys.
Tickets and merchandise are available now either online or at the fan shop at 234 W Napa Street in downtown Sonoma. Tickets will also be available at the box office on game days, beginning 30 minutes prior to the game.
