Championship Friday: First 1,000 Emeralds fan through gate to receive ring statue
EUGENE, Ore. - The Eugene Emeralds won the Northwest League championship last season.
The hometeam's big league affiliate - the Chicago Cubs - didn't do too shabby last season, either.
NBC 16 is hosting Championship Friday at the Emerald's game Friday, June 16.
The Ems take on the Vancouver Canadians at 7:05 a.m. seeking redemption after dropping the home opener 6-1 Thursday.
In honor of last season's championship, the first 1,000 fans through the home plate gate will receive a Northwest League Championship Ring Replica Statue, courtesy of Carls Jr.
Not to miss: The team will be wearing jerseys commemorating last season's victory, the first championship for the Emeralds since 1975.
On Saturday, June 17, to celebrate the occasion of the Cubs winning the World Series, Clark the Cub will be visiting Eugene. So come out to PK to help commemorate a truly special season for the team's parent club!
On Sunday, June 18, dads are encouraged to come early for the chance to make memories playing catch with their kids on the field of PK Park. Clark the Cub will also be on hand to help celebrate. | Share Your Father's Day Photos
