Vancouver a Model for Hillsboro?

Hillsborough Hops LogoThe Oregonian’s Tyson Alger takes a look at the Single-A Vancouver Canadians (Northwest League) as a model for longevity after the shine wears off the first-year Single-A Hillsboro Hops (Northwest League).  Read more and watch video here.  As a side note, we love just about everything about the new Hops franchise, but the team gets a “C-” for Barley the mascot.

  1. It is a great logo for kids and adults; I mean, a hop is a hop and he is not dangerous to anyone until someone adds water, yeast and barley to the mix.

    You don’t like Barley? My wife and I just returned from our road trip for the year which included two games in Hillsboro. We loved Barley. But were upset that they did not have a stuffed Barley and they did not have a home cap (the one with Barley on it) in my size. They were actually out of a lot of sizes. A lot more popular than they expected I assume.
