Silverados Featured in the Sonoma Index-Tribune

As published March 14th, 2017

New baseball team: A new independent, professional minor league baseball team in Napa would add a nice rivalry to the Sonoma Stompers’ season. Negotiations are underway with Napa Valley College to secure Storm Field for the “Napa Silverados” to start in June of 2018. Napa resident Bruce Johnston has a contract with the Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs to add the Silverados, pending approvals. The Silverados would join the Sonoma Stompers, Vallejo Admirals, San Rafael Pacifics and Pittsburg Diamonds in the independent league. Each of the teams plays an 80-game schedule, with the season running from June through August. Forty of those games are home games.”
