Oakland Ballers manager confident as inaugural season begins

The inaugural home opener for the Oakland Ballers next week will be a sold-out affair, according to team officials.

The team issued a press release Tuesday morning saying there were no more tickets available for the Ballers' first game at Raimondi Park against the Yolo High Wheelers. The game is scheduled for Tuesday, June 4, at 6:35 p.m.

"Today marks an incredible milestone for the Oakland Ballers and all Oakland sports fans as we announce that our inaugural home opener at Raimondi Park on June 4th is sold out. The overwhelming demand for tickets reflects the excitement surrounding our team and its debut at Raimondi Park," said Paul Freedman, co-founder of the Oakland Ballers. 

A week before the games, crews are still putting the finishing touches on the team's new 4,000-seat ballpark. The team has invested over $1.6 million in renovations to Raimondi Park.
