Congrats to the Hillsboro Hops: First Half Champs, guaranteed Division Playoff spot!

My lovely wife and I have become big time Hillsboro Hops supporters... Last year's Northwest League Champions are now well-positioned to repeat by winning the first half Championship.

Hillsboro's team, which with a little competence and smarter politics, could easily have been the Vancouver Bears, won the league championship last year in the second year of existence... and now, with an effectively completely new team and staff (Only 5 players remain from last year's team and the coaching staff is almost all new, with the rest mostly promoted up into the Diamondback organization) are positioned to repeat.

Well done to this fine organization, and looking forward to attending many more games in the second half!

With Friday night's win in Boise, the Hops claim the Northwest League South Division First Half Championship and are on their way to the playoffs!

Baseball in it's purest form.  Great plays, terrible plays, astounding plays and everything in between as these kids play their hearts out.

Well done!
