BLACK BEARS BOOSTER CLUB FORMS

AND

HOST FAMILIES STILL NEEDED

Longview-Kelso, Wash.:  Wednesday, June 2, 2010: With the Black Bears inaugural season about to begin, the Black Bears Booster Club is being organized.  The Booster Club is actively seeking members for various club activities, which include assisting Black Bears players and host families.

The Black Bears Booster Club is being organized by Sandra Weber, with support from the Black Bears staff.  Sandra may be reached at wdsweber@msn.com or 360-431-7152.  The Booster Club will have a Booster Club table at all Black Bears games at the new Story Field.

Not only will the Booster Club assist Black Bears players and their host families, but the club will handle the 50-50 Drawing at games, and plan trips to Black Bears road games.

The Black Bears are thrilled with the great community response for the Host Family Program.  Host families have a memorable experience providing a place for a player to overnight, while providing a few meals and at times some transportation.

As the Black Bears players report to the new Story Field, a few host families are still needed.  Contact the Black Bears office at 360-703-3195 or visit the club’s website www.cowlitzblackbears.com if you are able to help out.

Tickets remain for Opening Night, this Friday, June 4.  Also, fans can now purchase tickets for any of the Cowlitz Black Bears 30 games at the new Story Field.  Through Thursday tickets will be available at the Black Bears office at 755 Vandercook Way, 2nd Floor.  Starting Friday, tickets will be on sale at the Black Bears Story Field Ticket Office at the new Left Field Entrance.

The Black Bears are members of the West Coast League, a nine-team, professional-like wood-bat summer college league.  The WCL features pro prospects from major conferences across the country.  More than 100 WCL alums are playing affiliated professional baseball this season, and 12 ex-WCL stars are now playing in the Major Leagues.  For more information on the league, visit www.westcoastleague.com.
