The franchise moved from Yakima.


Where they sadly were not known as the Yakima Yeast.

They should have used the name of the region and called themselves the Cascades Hops. Though personally, I think the best pale ales being produced today are those featuring Citra hops.

So, will the mascot be a frog or a rabbit?
