— Play ball!

The Modesto Nuts kicked off the season with their home opener Thursday with a sell-out crowd.

Good times were had by all at John Thurman Field even though the Nuts lost 5-1 to the Lancaster JetHawks.

Many Modesto fans were all smiles as kids jumped around before play started.

Members of the Nuts gave autographs and fireworks lit up the sky.
