About the Hops
The Hops ran into many roadblocks in 2022. At the end of the 2021 season, they lost long time friend and teammate, Miguel Ibarra to covid. He is sorely missed.
In 2022, their manager moved away mid-season, a pitcher split time between home and a foreign country and a couple of other players moved away. That often left the team scrambling. Some weeks, the team struggled to field enough players to play.
But for the Hops, 2023 hopes to be a turnaround season. The manager position is filled and player recruiting is underway.
The Hops were swept by the Legends in the first round of the 2022 playoffs.
After an Opening day win for the 2023 season, the Hops have gone down in 2 close loses.
