CONDORSTOWN, Calif. - The Bakersfield Condors announced today that the team collected 8,380 stuffed animals which were collected and donated to the United Way of Kern County.

"We give a lot of thanks to everyone who showed up for a sellout crowd, brought a teddy bear, and it's crazy to see how many bears hit the ice."
