As a city, Portland has always had a sweet spot for Professional Baseball. We've been lucky enough to host the single A Hillsboro Hops (affiliate - Arizona Diamondbacks) out in 'burbs and the Portland Pickles, a collegiate level ball team that plays over at Warner Pacific. And remember those nights attending a Portland Beavers game at PGE Park with the family? Many of us have a shared experience of going to the ballpark, scarfing down a hotdog and rooting for the home team... and we are eager to get those experiences back, at a Big League Level.
Thanks to the help of the Portland Diamond Project + Others, Portland's dream of supporting a Professional MLB Baseball Team has the chance to become a reality.
Show your support for bringing an MLB Team to Portland by rocking a "Baseball to Portland" shirt or snapback hat. Colorway inspired by the State Flag. Stay tuned to the journey and read up on the current status of this project. Below are some great reads and resources to learn more about the project. PLAY BALL!
