The Monterey Amberjacks are a Professional Baseball Team in the Pecos League of Professional Baseball Clubs. Their home games are held at Sollecito Park. In the Fall of 2016 season the Pecos League announced it would expand to Bakersfield and High Desert for the 2017 season. The High A California League withdrew from both of these cities at the end of the 2016 season. Moving into these stadiums was a great opportunity for the Pecos League. Logistics would pose an immediate problem with the league's existing eight teams.
The best solution was to add an entire California Division with Monterey, Bakersfield, High Desert and California City is ideal for the Pecos League. Sollectio Park is a beautiful Ballpark that touches the famous Dennis the Menace Park. In 2015 the City of Monterey installed artificial turf to Sollectio Park.
