Blaze Baseball

Blaze baseball will cease at the end of the season at Sam Lynn Ballpark in Bakersfield.

Seventy-five years of history and a steady flow of nearly 10,000 professional baseball games in Bakersfield will come to a screeching halt next month.

Minor League Baseball announced Monday that the Blaze and the High Desert Mavericks, another team in the California League, will cease operations when this season ends, with two High Class A franchises moving from the Cal League to the Carolina League.
