Yakima Bears move closer to having baseball in Hillsboro next summer
The Yakima Bears is one step closer to taking the Northwest League team to the city of Hillsboro, Oregon next summer.
The Hillsboro city council approved a naming rights agreement Tuesday night for the proposed 4,500-seat stadium. The council also approved for a contract with the Yakima Bears owner, Short Season LLC.
The move from Yakima, Washington to Hillsboro, Oregon still requires the approval of Major and Minor League Baseball and a concessions agreement.
