Professional baseball is returning to the greater Portland area. The brand new Hillsboro Hops team is set to play its first home game tonight at the newly built Hillsboro Ballpark.

The team’s website says the home opener against the Eugene Emeralds is sold out.

The team is a single-A baseball affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The team is also part of the Northwest League. That league includes teams in Salem-Keizer, Eugene, Boise and elsewhere around the Northwest.
