YAKIMA, Wash. — With the start of the West Coast League’s 2020 season still nine months away, the Yakima Valley Pippins began preparations for their seventh season at The Orchard with the launch of season ticket sales.
The Pippins will have a 30-game home schedule for 2020, which will include 27 WCL games and three non-league games, general manager Jeff Garretson said. The Pippins have had 32 home games for the past few years.
Season ticket prices will be reduced because of the fewer home games, Garretson added. And, the team is extending discounted renewal pricing to the end of 2019, instead of the usual renewal period through the end of October.
“Every year, we try to do something different that will make it easier for fans to purchase season tickets or a Family Pass and get out to as many games as possible every summer,” Garretson said.
Season ticket buyers also receive a long list of perks not available to single-game purchasers, Garretson said. Some of those perks include buy 1, get 1 concession stand punch cards, discount season parking passes, custom lanyards for express lines at concessions stands, merchandise discounts and more.
The Family Pass is also being tweaked this summer, Garretson said. The $405 general admission season ticket will cover up to six members of the immediate household for the regular season, which translates to just $2.25 per ticket, per game. Previously, the pass was good for four family members.
Tickets can be purchased by phone at 509-575-4487 or in person at the Pippins office at 12 S. Second St. in the Larson Building in downtown Yakima. Select seats also are available for purchase at PippinsTickets.com.
The 2020 WCL schedule will be released in mid- to late October, Garretson said.
