If you're looking for a night out with the family, look no further than the People's Home Equity Ballpark and the Sonoma Stompers Baseball club. The Stompers joined the Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs in 2014, bringing independent professional baseball to Sonoma, CA. Recently acquired by Sonoma local, Jon Sebastiani, the team is bringing an all ages, family-oriented summer activity to the valley.
Since their establishment, the Stompers have been making history one season after another. In 2015, Stompers pitcher Sean Conroy, became the first openly gay active professional baseball player. In 2016, the Sonoma Stompers shattered even more steroetypes when they signed two female players- outfielder-pitcher Kelsie Whitmore and infielder Stacy Piagno- becoming the first coed baseball team since the 1950's. The Stompers continued this trend, adding catcher Anna Kimbrell to their roster in July of 2016. They topped off their historic 2016 season winning both the first and second halves, as well as the league championship.
New ownership this season has brought several improvements to the ballpark experience for fans, with new seating areas like the Krave Klub that looks out along the third base line.
Upcoming special events at the ball park include Zupa Noma Night featuring Ayesha Curry, as well as Bocce Ball night, Sweet Scoops night, and Star Wars night! To explore a full list of upcoming events click here.
The Sonoma Stopmers are bringing big league entertainment to small-town Sonoma, and hope to give back to the community that they call home. With multiple local partners such as People's Home Equity Mortgage Lending, Mary's Pizza Shack, 3 Badge Beverage Corp., and the Sonoma Index Tribune, the Stompers have quickly ingrained themselves in the Sonoma community.
There is still plenty of season left, so get your tickets here! We hope to see you all at a game soon.
