The Highline Bears summer collegiate baseball team is getting a little bit crazier every season (opening night is this Saturday, June 1), and the first batter of the Bears season will actually be a fan (18 or older) who is chosen at random through a raffle before the game.

The Bears will have a “fan batter of the night” two times a month during non-league games.

The Bears aren’t just your normal baseball game, they make sure that every person who enters the ballpark has a night they will never forget. From the music over the PA system, between inning contests, give-a-ways, games, and races the Bears take a baseball game and turn it into a circus. The first batter of the Bears season will actually be a fan (18 or older) who is chosen at random through a raffle before the game. The Bears will have a fan batter of the night two times a month during non-league games.

The Highline Bears are giving away magnet schedules to the first 250 fans through the gates, just like the Mariners do. The unofficial Mayor of White Center will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch and the Shorewood Elementary choir will be singing the national anthem.

The Bears mascot Buntly the Bear pumps up the crowd, interacting with fans and dancing throughout the game. However, the outcome of contract negotiations may stall the first appearance of Buntly. This past week the mascot has ended his contract negotiations with General Manager Justin Moser and the contracted ended on Tuesday evening (read more here).

Nonetheless, the Bears say the “show must go on” and want to pack the park this Saturday, June 1 at 7 p.m. Tickets are affordable with the highest ticket price at $8 for adults, youth and seniors are $5 and kids 8 and under are always free with a paying adult.

The Bears play June 1 through Aug. 3, with 24 home games this season.
