Former San Francisco Giants Manager Dusty Baker stopped by Antioch to sign autographs for fans during a session at Kangazoom, on Sunday afternoon, December 18. He was joined by former Major League Baseball players Mike Norris and Mike Felder, who also signed autographs for the fans, both young and old
Baker, who is a graduate of Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, California and lives in Sacramento, led the Giants to the 2002 National League pennant, and also managed the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds. He’s currently the manager for the Washington Nationals and led all three of the latter teams to the playoffs.
As a player for 19 years with the Giants, Oakland A’s, Atlanta Braves and L.A. Dodgers, Baker helped the Dodgers to pennants in 1977 and 1978 and a World Series Championship in 1981.
He spent his time at Kangazoom talking with fans including the Game Changers Little League baseball team. The event was also sponsored by Oliver Scott and a meal for the players and organizers was provided by Southern Café in Antioch’s historic, downtown Rivertown, later that afternoon.
This is the second autograph signing by former Major League Baseball players held by Kangazoom since they opened in September. The family fun center features batting cages, miniature golf, indoor jumpers, party rooms and a snack bar. Kangazoom is located at 501 Auto Center Drive, between W. 4th and W. 10th Streets in Antioch. For more information call (925) 776-4386, like their Facebook page or visit www.kangazoom-antioch.com.
New “Super Sport” club designed to keep pace with growth in Antioch, East County
The 24 Hour Fitness at the Somersville Towne Center in Antioch is expanding and relocating inside the former Gottschalks store. The new club is designed to match the fitness lifestyle needs of some of the fastest-growing communities in the San Francisco Bay Area, found here in Eastern Contra Costa County.
A grand opening event is scheduled this Saturday, December 17, 2016 from 9:00 a.m., to 1:00 p.m. for the 24 Hour Fitness Somersville Road Super Sport at 2520 Somersville Road in Antioch. The community is invited to this free celebration, which includes club tours, prize drawings, group training demonstrations, innovative group exercise studio classes and more.
The new club is situated in what is both a highly retail and densely residential area, and so the 24 Hour Fitness Somersville Road Super Sport will be poised where more and more East Bay residents live, play, dine and shop.
“We are excited to meet the needs of this rapidly-growing community with a large and convenient space for fitness,” said Tony Cigliutti, General Manager. “With a greater variety of equipment, and more of it, plus classes like Cycle and amenities like a lap pool, basketball court and Kids Club, there really is something for every member of the family. As the winter holidays and New Year approach, we know many people set new goals for themselves. The club is just one part of leading and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and we can help members meet those health and fitness goals even when they are outside of the club.”
The new, 38,000+ square foot club features a modern design and open-floor plan. Amenities include:
