First pitch for Hops Sunday home games will be 1:35pm or 4:05pm with the opportunity for kids 14 and under to run the bases at Hillsboro Ballpark following the game.

In an effort to make the ballpark even more family friendly, the Hops will be launching a new "Kids Zone" located beyond the left field fence. This area will be free to kids and will include activities for all ages.
