Episode 14: A memorable Husky week and talking Hops with K.L. Wombacher
The General Manger of the Hillsboro Hops stops by to talk about the future of Ron Tonkin Field, Dansby Swanson and what sharing a home field with the Canadians all summer was like.
This week on The I-5 Corridor, Tyson and Aidan wrap up a memorable Washington week, sympathize for Oregon State kicker Everett Hayes’ roller coaster of a Saturday and continue to wonder if the Blazers are going to turn this thing around.
Then (at the 20:30 marker) Tyson travels out to Hillsboro to sit down with Hillsboro Hops general manager K.L. Wombacher. The Hops just completed their first year of full-season Single-A and the have big plans moving forward under the new minor league baseball realignment. Wombacher talks about the future of the franchise, his time with World Series champion Dansby Swanson and answers Tyson’s important question: What’s better: Winter Meetings for Spring Training?
