It starts with a dream
The Hillsboro Hops is a Minor League Baseball team located in Hillsboro, Oregon, a city in the Portland metropolitan area. Hillsboro Hops are the High-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 2014, 2015 & 2019 Northwest League Champions will soon be playing in a new ballpark, adjacent to the Gordon Faber Recreation Complex.
The Hops were previously a Class-A Short Season team. MLB removed that minor league classification as part of a larger reorganization of the minor leagues ahead of the 2021 season, promoting the Hops and several other teams to the more prestigious High-A classification. With the Hillsboro Hops promotion to the High-A level, the Hops must now meet updated Major League Baseball (MLB) facility standards. The City of Hillsboro is partnering with the Hops to support the team in its efforts to meet the new baseball player development requirements. The original intent of the project was to renovate Ron Tonkin Field, but after the completion of preliminary design and analysis through the progressive design-build process, it was determined that it will be more cost effective to design and build a new ballpark.
