Photos and Story by Isabel Herbruger, age 11

I caught the Bears at the White Center Jubilee Days Carnival and Fireworks show Wednesday night (July 15) helping out.

Buntly and the players were kept busy with fans before the fireworks – they were handing out game tickets and trading cards. Their rookie baseball trading cards are awesome, I can’t wait to finish collecting them from all the players and get them signed at the games this weekend!

#11 Wesener and #33 Terrell are really magical.
