Modesto Nuts

 The Modesto Nuts are a minor league baseball team in Modesto, California, USA. They are a Class A - Advanced team in the California League and a farm team of the Colorado Rockies. The Modesto Nuts play home games at John Thurman Field. Opened in 1955 and renovated in 1997, the park seats over 5,000 fans. In March 2007, the City of Modesto installed a new video scoreboard and made improvements to the infield playing surface.

The Nuts adopted their current name in 2005, after the team's affiliation with the Oakland Athletics ended. Before then, the team was known as the Modesto Athletics. The new name was chosen to reflect the several types of nuts that are grown in the region.

In 2012 Greg Young was replaced by Alex Margulies who now does play-by-play for all home and away games, and Modesto Bee sports writer Brian VanderBeek does color commentary in the middle innings of most home games. The play-by-play position was formerly held by Joshua Suchon, who now works for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

On June 2, 2006, manager Chad Kreuter resigned to become the head baseball coach of the University of Southern California. Kreuter replaced his father-in-law, Mike Gillespie.
