FRESNO, CA - The Fresno Grizzlies are thrilled to announce that Chukchansi Park has been selected to appear on the cover of the 2012 Baseball America Great Parks Calendar. The photo, which was shot from center field, shows the majority of the ballpark's seated area and was taken by Grizzlies team photographer and Fresnan Don Davis.

This marks the first time that the home of the Grizzlies, designed by HOK Architects and built in 2002, will be featured in the annual publication. The Grizzlies celebrated 10 years in their downtown ballpark during the 2011 season. The 2012 Great Parks Calendar is available through the Baseball America website at www.baseballamerica.com/store or by calling 1-800-845-2726.

"It is a testament to the beauty of Fresno's baseball home that Baseball America has chosen Chukchansi Park for this honor," said Grizzlies President & CEO Chris Cummings. "We are fortunate to have such a facility here for Central Valley residents to enjoy, both during and outside of the baseball season."

Chukchansi Park plays host to 72 regular season Grizzlies home games, as well as the Fresno Fuego and more than 40 non-athletic events every year. In all, the ballpark attracted over 570,000 visitors to Downtown Fresno this year.

The Fresno Grizzlies open their 2012 home season against the Tacoma Rainiers on Friday, April 13th. Season tickets for 2012 are available now with 12-game mini-plans starting as low as $84.
