The Yakima Bears are excited to announce that Sports Center will host the Official Viewing Party for the team's first playoff game. Fans can watch the Bears first playoff game live from Boise at Sports Center in downtown Yakima Monday night.

Sports Center, located at 214 East Yakima Avenue in downtown, will be showing the game on projector screens Monday with no cover charge. First pitch from Boise is scheduled for 5:45, which is right in the middle of Sport Center's 4:00 to 7:00 happy hour.

Bears public address announcer Todd Lyons will host the event, with Bears prizes to be given away to fans in attendance. Playoff tickets will also be on sale at Sports Center Monday night during the event.

The game in Boise will be followed by a home playoff game Tuesday night, with up to three more home playoff games possible.

Sports Center has recently gone under new ownership, which has led to several changes to "Yakima's true downtown sports bar."

An official Grand Opening under the new ownership is being planned for September 15th, with drink specials and prizes, including Seattle Seahawks tickets, to be given away.
