HILLSBORO, OR (March 5, 2018) -The Hillsboro Hops (@HillsboroHops) announced that the team will re-brand themselves as the Portland Mavericks for Monday home games during the 2018 season starting on Monday, July 2. The Portland Mavericks nights are: July 2, July 16, August 20, August 27 and September 3.
The Hops will offer a "Mavs Mini-Plan" for fans wanting to purchase a mini-season ticket plan to the 5 games where the Hops will wear the Portland Mavericks uniforms made popular by the independent professional baseball team in the 1970s. The Mavericks rose to even greater prominence after the 2014 release of the documentary "The Battered Bastards of Baseball".
Fans can purchase tickets here or at the Hops ticket office. Purchasers of the Mavs Mini-Plan will receive access to purchase exclusive Portland Mavericks merchandise prior to the general public.
"The Portland Mavericks are such a cool story and they are part of the fabric of baseball in the Portland-metro area," said Hillsboro Hops President K.L. Wombacher. "We've been looking for an opportunity to bring these uniforms back since we wore them in 2015, and we're excited to expand the Portland Mavericks connection with Hops fans."
The Hops merchandise store will feature two Portland Mavericks hats: the on-field New Era 5950 and a similar snapback version. There will also be a Portland Mavericks Retro Brand T-Shirt available for purchase. The Portland Mavericks merchandise items will be available in May.
Special ceremonies honoring the Portland Mavericks teams of the 1970s will be announced at a later date.
