Tucson Saguaros manager Bill Moore, now 73 years old, has seen a lot of baseball in his day.

"He's got a different story for us every day out at practice," said infielder Ryan Ratz.

The story for Moore's team this year is that they are getting a new home field. After two seasons at Kino Stadium, the Saguaros will play this summer at Reid Park field number five.

"Personally, I think it is a much prettier, much more casual, family friendly atmosphere," said Moore.

Gone are the lights, meaning games will start at 5:00 p.m. Also going away are a lot of empty seats, and the team having no clubhouse.

"It's huge to have their own clubhouse," added Moore. Big. Huge."

"It's actually my first time having a clubhouse," said outfielder Jaquese Moore, who's unrelated to the manager. "In college, we didn't have one. It's nice to relax and chill with the guys and have a place to call home."

Jaquese Moore comes from Arkansas Pine-Bluff. Retz is a returning player. While the team has a new home, some of the players are looking for one as well. The Saguaros are still looking for host families for the summer schedule.
