Photos and Story by Isabel Herbruger, age 13

The last chance to see the Highline Bears in action this season is this coming Friday, July 28, 2017, at 7 p.m. against the NW Emeralds at Steve Cox Memorial Stadium.

Their record may not be the best this year, but there is still lots of fun to be had. Locals have sung the national anthem for every game this season. There are games between the innings for the kids like inner tube races and dizzy bat contests. The 50-50 winner last night took home over $100 too, thanks to the Eagles.

The Bears lost Saturday night to the Honkers after an attempted rally in the 9th inning. But it was all laughs when the announcer Pete Richmire played the Nintendo Mario Brothers song for the walk up music for Honker Jordan Padillo, who actually looks like Mario and Luigi!

The Bears have two games in Walla Walla this week, if you are a die-hard fan and want to go. Otherwise, come to the last game of the season next Friday!
