Sure, here in Portland we don’t have a major league team like in Seattle, Los Angeles or San Francisco, but what we have is something better. We boast not one, but two Single A teams: the Hillsboro Hops and the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, both of which are within about 30 miles of Portland. This summer bask in America’s pastime with sun (we can only hope!) and Cracker Jack deliciousness for less money and less hassle.
Why Single A is Triple Awesome!
Both stadiums are small and intimate, which means you are never far from the action. Between innings they play silly games, from the Hops’ “Musical Yoga Balls” (think exercise balls as musical chairs) to dance contests. Plus, the players are super friendly, eager to sign an autograph and often give a lucky fan a game-used bat or ball.
