The Cowlitz Black Bears Souvenir Program is a free companion piece made available to all fans upon entry to the ballpark. Each year, it contains articles, stat leaders, a game scorecard and much more.
To celebrate our Tenth Anniversary Season, the 2019 program included four pages of photos from the past decade. Titled “10 Years of Photo Fun,” fans were invited to fill in the blanks of each caption. If you didn’t get a chance to play the game, you can still pick up a free copy of the this year’s program at the Black Bears’ main office at 1717 Olympia Way, Suite 102 in Longview.
As promised, here are the answers to the caption blanks:
3. YMCA, 1978
4. Corbin Powers
5. Triangle Bowl
6. Gangnam Style
8. Nyles Nygaard
9. Hillbilly Horseshoes
10. center field
