Yakima Bears

Last night Susan and I went to what will probably be our last baseball game in Yakima.  The Yakima Bears are leaving town after this season. The Bears played the Eugene Emeralds. It was still hot and sunny when the teams were warming-up. Our seats were in the shade the entire time.
This is Boomer, the Bears mascot. He is standing with K.L. Wombacher, manager of the Bears and Tony O'Rourke (red shirt), Yakima's new city manager. It was Hawaiian night at the ballpark, which explains the hula skirt.
Our seats were great - right behind the catcher. I have never seen a game from that view before and it was quite exciting. The Bears won 2-0 and they are in the playoffs.
Go Bears!
