The Hops Team

The Arizona Diamondbacks of Major League
Baseball has selected the name Hillsboro “Hops”
for its Single-A baseball team affiliate. The name
‘Hops’ recognizes Hillsboro’s proud agricultural
heritage and the fact that Oregon is the second
largest hop producing state in the United States.

The name was selected based on suggestions
from ticket holders who it seems are fans of
beer as well as baseball.

intoxicated due to an Anheuser-Busch

brews and souvenir glasses. The beers being
served were Anheuser-Busch’s “small batch”
brews. Bartenders inside the tent confirmed they
were indeed usually quite “busy”. Anheuser-
Busch, which has apparently been the “official
beer” of the the presidential debates since 1996.
