Return of the Multi-Use Stadium

Well, not exactly, but the Sacramento River Cats are modifying Raley Field to hold classical music performances, graduation parties, and other non-baseball fare:

The venue -- including a covered open-air patio and a small building with dressings rooms, food service area, restrooms and office space -- could accommodate 60 more events at the stadium. A smaller venue lowers the cost, making it more feasible for groups to rent part of the stadium.

I suppose that's a reasonable and efficient use of real estate that lies fallow all but 70 some nights a year, but here's hoping they don't trot out Raley's famous $8.75 draft beers when the class of 2011 graduates from Rio Americano High School.
