Flip flops, sandals, sunshine and baseball are making a return to the Albany area soon!  The Houston Astros minor league affiliate, the Tri-City ValleyCats, kick off their season at Joe Bruno Stadium in Troy on Wednesday, June 20th.

Tickets go on sale for opening day on April 4th at 10am.  Check out the ValleyCats official website for special deals being offered this season.  Going to the games is a great experience and food, beer and drink are all reasonably priced.

Bring the kids, grandparents or friends.  Whether you're a fan of baseball or not, I guarentee you'll have a good time checking out the next big things in Major League Baseball (Phillie's outfielder Hunter Pence started out with the ValleyCats).

While you're there, grab me some peanuts and cracker jacks!
