The team sent out a press release and talked about their stadium has become a “hotspot for Pokemon” in the last few days. They also talked about how Jaime Schultz and infielder Cameron Seitzer have been seen playing Pokemon Go on the field ahead of games.

“The problem was, many of the Pokemon were on the field, and our fans weren’t able to catch them. With the team on the road for two weeks though, we thought this would be a perfect time to allow fans to catch the previously unattainable characters.”
