May 31, 2013 // // RICHARDSON, Texas – Just as baseball season is heating up, Wingstop Sacramento Valley and the Sacramento River Cats announced the award-winning wing chain are proud partners of the minor league baseball team for the 2013 season.

To celebrate the partnership, Wingstop will host a wing-eating contest for fans at the home game at Raley Field on May 30, and will be giving away Wingstop stadium cups and coupons to game attendees.

“There’s no better match-up than wings and sports and we are thrilled to partner with the River Cats,” said Michael Morris, owner-operator of several Wingstops in the area. “We love being a part of the Sacramento community, and are excited to give back to baseball fans and be part of the Cats lineup this season.”

Additionally, Wingstop will be the title sponsor of Raley Field’s seventh annual Brewfest on Friday, June 7 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. Tickets are available in advance at or at the field on the day of the event.
