Peanuts, Cracker Jacks, skillful play and charitable programs are a few of the warm-hearted baseball fan’s favorite things.

Santa Clarita Valley Night with the JetHawks is striving to bring at least the last two items together at The Hangar stadium in Lancaster Saturday night.

“(We) realized Santa Clarita is very into sports. We want to open up people’s eyes to the high-quality pro baseball” available in Lancaster, said JetHawks assistant general manager Will Murphy on Thursday.

SCV Night at The Hangar features the host Lancaster JetHawks, the Class A Advanced minor league affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros, against the Inland Empire 66ers, a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim farm team.

Tickets start at $8. Game time is 6 p.m.

As part of SCV Night, the JetHawks have allowed the WiSH Education Foundation and the city of Santa Clarita’s S.C.O.R.E. program to sell tickets to the game and retain half of the proceeds, Murphy says.

To purchase tickets benefitting S.C.O.R.E., community members can visit the city’s Aquatics Center registration office before 5 p.m. today. WiSH Education Foundation game tickets can be purchased online at www.wishscv.org.

Game tickets are also available on the Web at www.JetHawks.com, by calling 661-726-5400, or at the stadium the day of the game (starting at $10).

Are the JetHawks worth the price of admission?

Murphy stressed the high caliber of Lancaster’s players over the years: more than 115 former JetHawks have made it to the Major Leagues, he says, including Houston’s Jose Altuve and Colorado’s Carlos Gonzales.

In addition to the action on the field, the first 1,000 fans through the gate Saturday will receive a JetHawks reversible basketball jersey featuring Lakers’ colors on one side, Clippers’ on the other.

The Signal’s Alesia Humphries will sing the national anthem. And five Santa Clarita Valley veterans — R.J. Kelly, Jim Lentini, Bill Reynolds, Chuck Morris and Greg Nutter — will throw out the game’s ceremonial first pitches.

“It’s a lot of fun,” Signal Publisher Russ Briley said of JetHawks games. “It’s different than Major League Baseball; there is something (fun) going on every half inning.”

The Hangar stadium is located at 45116 Valley Central Way in Lancaster.
