Come out and celebrate Independence Day with the Hoppers, the City of Hopkinsville, and media sponsors WHVO and WKDZ.
Enjoy food trucks, music from Keegan Raleigh(https://www.raleighkeegan.com ) & more all afternoon, with fireworks sponsored by the City of Hopkinsville and Parks and Recreation after the Hoppers game. Be sure to bring chairs and blankets for the pre-game festivities (beginning AT 4PM), as they will be held in the field adjacent to Colonel Field! Let’s set a record attendance since admission is only $1.
The Hoppers fought a hard game last night, but fell 6-1 to the Stallions. The Stallions got on the board in the first inning with a ground out RBI, and held off the Hoppers until the bottom of the ninth, when Blake Jackson launched a fly ball into the scoreboard for the only Hopper HR of the night. Aidan Elias led the Hoppers in hits, going 2 for 4 at the plate.
Trey Fortner took the loss for the Hoppers, lasting nearly 6 innings and allowing eight hits and five runs while striking out six and walking only one.
