How to Make the Most of the Palm Springs Power Baseball Season

Posted By: Sarah Romero Friday, May 20, 2016

The Palm Springs Power baseball team is one of Palm Springs’ hidden entertainment gems. The “Power” is a summer collegiate team that has won 5 straight SCCBL championships. More importantly, the high-energy games make for a perfect, budget-friendly evening out with the whole family.

The season kicks off Friday, June 3rd, with a home game against So Cal Catch at 6:35 p.m. that’s followed by an inaugural fireworks show.

 

 

Here are other special family-friendly Power events happening at Palm Springs Stadium this season to mark on your summer vacation calendar:

 

 

  • June 21: 1st Responders Night. Free admission for police, firefighters, EMTs and military.

  • June 21-23: POWER Youth Camp. This camp for baseball players from kindergarten through 12th grade covers the ins and outs of baseball, including important aspects that can be carried into other areas of life, like sportsmanship and discipline.

  • June 25: Wet ’n’ Wild Night. The first 500 fans admitted to the game will receive a free Wet ’n’ Wild water park admission.

  • July 4: City of Palm Springs 4th of July Firework Spectacular. The game begins at 6:05 p.m. with fireworks to follow.

 

 

If you’ve never brought the kids to a Power game before, here’s an easy checklist of 5 things to bring with you to the stadium:

 

 

  1. Hats and/or sunglasses. The kids are more likely to enjoy their first game-day experience if the sun’s out of their eyes.

  2. Sunscreen. No sense getting a sunburn as a memento from their first Power game.

  3. Jackets or blankets. It might be hot when you first arrive for the game, but once the sun goes down your little ones might get chilly.

  4. Snacks. If you’ve got picky eaters in the group, packing their favorite snacks will help you all enjoy the game in peace.

  5. Seat cushions. It’s not a must, but bleacher seats can be uncomfortable for long periods of time, so anything to keep the kids comfy longer is a good idea.

 

 

Regular admission to the games is $8. Seniors get in for $7, and students cost $6. You can purchase your tickets by calling the POWER ticket office at (760) 668-HITS or visiting the box office.
