    As I mentioned in another thread on this topic, since they moved from Yakima (where they were known as the Bears), Hops would have been a good name there too. The Yakima region is the largest hop-growing region in the country.

    The REAL question is: Will there be an IPA at the park? I'd not, I WILL raise hell!!!

    I'd rush to buy a Hops hat or t-shirt, and I'm on the other side of the country.

    Pretty sweet! Not to hard to get over to Hillsboro on public transport. Hopefully they put it in a good location.

    It's not as funny as giving your gf a shirt from the yakult baseball team, but i'd buy a hat.

    Already planning a trip next summer.

    Ideally catch a 2-3 game homestand, do some camping, hit up Cascade, Johns, Belmont, Deschutes, HUB, maybe hotd, laurelwood etc. . .

    Who knows maybe do a day in Bend, they have a college summer league there & good beer scene as well.

    We've got a team in the same league with Bend here in Bellingham ( http://www.wccbl.com/ ), and the Everett Aquasox play in the same league that the Hops will. Been meaning to make a beer and baseball trip to Bend myself.

    T-shirts are available for pre-order now. So far, that's the only merch on their site.

    Saw that. Apparently the presale is going really well for them. Not surprised.
