PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland Beavers will open the 2010 Pacific Coast League season at PGE Park on Thursday, April 8, against the Sacramento River Cats, it was announced today as the club released its regular-season schedule for the upcoming campaign.

The 2010 home schedule once again includes a traditional July 4 home game - this season against the Las Vegas 51s - and a host of afternoon/morning games.
