2022 GAMEDAY PROGRAM


OFFICIAL AUTOGRAPH PAGE


TO OUR AMAZING BLACK BEARS FANS... Growth and Progress These are exciting times for Cowlitz Black Bears baseball, and for the West Coast League. After the 10 US-based teams played in 2021, the 2022 WCL Season includes 16 teams. Kelowna and Victoria return after a two-season Covid hiatus, and new teams take the field in Springfield (OR), Edmonton (AB), Kamloops and Nanaimo (BC). With the added teams, the League is introducing an expanded, 8-team playoff format for 2022. In addition, the League continues to implement player development and fan experience initiatives, with every team utilizing technology solutions such as Trackman for player analytics, and every WCL game streamed live. While evolution is ongoing, there is much about our games that remains, thankfully, similar to when the Black Bears first took the field 12 seasons ago. Our players are still college student-athletes from throughout the country – our all-time roster is likely to pass the 500 player mark this season! -hosted and introduced to the community by a dedicated and kind network of host families, supported by community conscious sponsors, and playing in an intimate, accessible ballpark. We look forward to continuing to grow with you, and we thank you for joining us for a ballgame. Go Black Bears! - Tony Bonacci Cowlitz Black Bears
