Baseball is back in Yakima
posted Jun 2 2014 11:36AM
Baseball has a long and storied history in the Yakima Valley. As a kid growing up in Yakima I remember watching the Yakima Bears at Parker Field in the 50's and early 60's. American Legion Baseball and Fastpitch softball at Dunbar filed at Larson Park had plenty of Yakima fans. Yakima suffered a baseball drought last year when the Bears packed up and left.
The good news is..Baseball is back in the Yakima Valley. The YakIma Pippins of the Northwest League will begin their season at YakIma County Stadium June 6 against the Wenatchee Applesox.. The crack of the bat will soon be heard again.....Play Ball.
