All Yakima Bears Sunday home games are normally scheduled to begin at 5:35, but this Sunday high forecasted temperatures have raised health concerns. Weather forecasts are calling for a high of more than 105 degrees with mostly sunny skies on Sunday.
The Yakima Bears will host Prostate Cancer Awareness Night during a 7:05 game against the Tri-City Dust Devils at Yakima County Stadium on Saturday. The event is sponsored by Washington Hematology-Oncology and will feature some special appearances and a fireworks extravaganza.
During the Yakima Bears first homestand of the 2012 N.W.L. season, you may have missed a few ex-Big Leaguers in the stands.
Quinton McCracken, who had a stint with the Mariners in 2004, was on a scouting trip to watch how some of the Arizona Diamondbacks prospects were progressing here in Yakima.
Sitting behind home plate, next to McCracken, for much of the series though was a 13-year veteran of M.L.B. whom many in the valley will remember from his high school (Eisenhower) and American Legion (Beetles) days.
Some may have heard of him from the Brad Pitt flick “Moneyball.”
The Yakima Bears lost 6-5 in 10 innings in the opening game of the Northwest League season Friday night at PK Park in Eugene, Oregon. The Bears could not overcome Eugene first baseman Clark Murphy, who started the 2012 season by electrifying the 3,569 fans at PK Park.
