The 'Bakersfield Train Robbers' set up at Sam Lynn Ballpark

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Bakersfield Train Robbers -- a baseball team in the Pecos League of Professional Baseball Clubs -- is setting up shop at Sam Lynn Ballpark.

Signs were seen posted on Thursday by a 23ABC News viewer.

On the team's website, they say they play at Sam Lynn Ballpark:

"The Train Robbers play in historic Sam Lynn Ballpark. Sam Lynn Ballpark is the only active Professional Baseball Park that faces West. This causes huge problems as games cannot begin until the sun sets. Despite a 120 foot sun wall that was built nothing is powerful enough to block sun directly behind the centerfield fence." 

The website says the team will begin playing in May.

The move comes after the Bakersfield Blaze left Kern County after last season.
