Banks’ Mayor Jones to throw first pitch at Hops game August 17

The Hillsboro Hops will hold a joint community night for Banks and North Plains Wednesday, August 17, and Banks Mayor Stephanie Jones is expected to throw out the first pitch. 

“For entertainment value alone, that’s probably worth seeing,” Jones quipped during a city council roundtable while discussing the Hops game during the August 9 city council meeting. 

Tickets for the Baseball game start at $7 plus ticket fees, and can be purchased online or by calling 503-640-0887, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Hops are scheduled to play the Eugene Emeralds at Ron Tonkin Field in Hillsboro (4460 NE Century Blvd Hillsboro, Oregon 97124) with gates opening at 6 p.m. and the first pitch starting at 7:05 p.m. Wednesday, August 17.
