Prune Packers Coming to the Plate for Healdsburg Little League Juniors
The Prune Packers summer collegiate baseball team is excited to hear that Healdsburg Little League has been chosen to host both the Little League Junior’s Sectional and Little League Junior’s State Post Season Tournaments at historic Recreation Park. To accommodate these two Little League tournaments, the Prune Packers will be rescheduling some of their 2021 games to earlier times and moving two games to new dates.
Both Recreation Park and the Healdsburg Prune Packers are celebrating their 100th Anniversary so it is a fitting year for Little League to be chosen for two prestigious tournaments. An updated Prune Packer schedule is now available. Time to “Play Ball”!

Pulling up to the ballpark in Healdsburg, Calif. is like stepping into a different place in time — entering another realm where the baseball is as unique in the 98-year-old park it is played in.
“The town itself…it’s like Americana,” said Prune Packers General Manager Joey Gomes.
Set in the rolling hills of California Wine Country, the Healdsburg experience is a special one. Fans are treated to not only top-quality baseball bolstered by a stable of MLB prospects, including 2019 No. 3 overall pick Andrew Vaughn, but also the history and heritage epitomized by the Prune Packers’ Recreation Park.
The Prune Packers may be known as the team with the memorable moniker located in a picturesque town, but their uniqueness has not stopped them from becoming a force in college summer baseball. The Prune Packers were recently ranked as high as No. 6 in the nation by the Collegiate Summer Baseball Register. With their relaxed attitude off the field and unrelenting ambition in the game, the Prune Packers have excelled under Gomes’ tutelage and put Healdsburg on the baseball map.
