  • It turns out that I likely watched Russell Wilson as he played for the Tri-City Dust Devils when I would go to the Yakima Bears games. I don't remember specifically seeing him, but the likelyhood is there.

    It seems that Russell Wilson was destined to be in the Pacific Northwest!

  • Which means I played on the same field that Russ Wilson played on!

    (I went to Stottlemeyer baseball camp as a kid for a few years... A lot of the camp takes place on the same field the Bears play on)

    I am a hero!

  • Yeah I probably saw him play the Indians that summer too. Bizarre to think that I could have watched my future HOF Seahawk QB and only man crush play baseball in Spokane WA.

    Funny world sometimes.

  • I miss the Yakima Bears. Was my favorite thing to do growing up. Bears game, polish dog loaded w/ mustard, relish and krout.

    Aren't they gone now?

    They are now the Hillsboro Hops if I remember correctly? I think that they were originally the Salem Hops and then moved to Yakima, and now to Hillsboro.

  • Yes, they are now in Hillsboro, OR.

    However, Yakima is getting another baseball team next year. The West Coast League. No name for the team yet, I don't think.
