Highline Bears want 10,000 Fans to ‘Be A Part Of It’ this Summer

The local semi-professional Highline Bears baseball team announced their latest goal of attracting 10,000 fans through their gates this summer, at Mel Olson Stadium inside Steve Cox Memorial Park in White Center.

The Bears are heading into their third season in the Pacific International League, where they have broken all attendance records two years in a row.

This year the team is hoping for the community to come out and be a part of it once again.

“This community has been very supportive of what we are trying to build.” said General Manager Justin Moser. “This season we are stepping it up and want to get as many fans through the gates as possible. If we reach our goal of 10,000 fans we will rank as one of the top 100 summer collegiate baseball teams in the country for attendance.”

The team – which opens their season on Friday, June 2nd at 7:05 p.m. – is planning to attract fans with an array of entertainment and promotions.

“We take pride in running our organization as if it were a high end minor league baseball team. This year on top of our normal between inning games, we plan on having give-a-ways as we reach milestones towards 10,000 fans. We will have surprise give-a-ways at 2,500 fans, 5,000, 7,500 and of course when we hit 10,000 fans,” Moser said. “We have quite a few promotional nights on top of that as well, including Military Appreciation Night, kicking off National Ice Cream Month with an Ice Cream Eating contest, $2 Tuesday, where tickets and hot dogs are only two bucks, and a hot dog eating contest on National Hot Dog Day, just to name a few.”

The Highline Bears will host 28 players from 18 different colleges from around the area. All players are currently in college and are looking to pursue their career in baseball as far as it will take them.

The Bears will host 17 home games at Mel Olson Stadium inside of Steve Cox Memorial Park in White Center. Tickets to games are affordable at only $5 for adults with kids under the age of 12, and all service men & women being admitted for FREE.

“We pride ourselves on being a place for fun, affordable, family entertainment. There really aren’t many things a family of 4 can do for under $20, we do our best to provide that.”
