Longview Orthopedic Associates to Sponsor 2013 Black Bears

Longview Orthopedic Associates has signed on to sponsor Cowlitz Black Bears Baseball for the second consecutive year.

Under the banner of The Best Care Is Local Care, LOA will join forces with Pacific Surgical Institute tenants Longview Urology and Northwest Medical Analytic Laboratory/Lower Columbia Pathologists and with Longview Radiology.

The Best Care Is Local Care group has purchased an outfield sign and will also host special events nights on June 9, 23, and 30; July 4 and 21; and August 4. The focus will be on educating area residents about the availability of quality healthcare close to home.

Longview Physical & Sports Therapy – also located at Pacific Surgical Institute – is a Black Bears sponsor as well. LPST provides game coverage, with an athletic trainer onsite and handles the team’s physical therapy services.

The Black Bears are members of the West Coast League, which also includes the Bellingham Bells, Bend Elks, Corvallis Knights, Walla Walla Sweets, Wenatchee AppleSox, Kitsap BlueJackets, Kelowna Falcons, and Klamath Falls Gems. Teams are comprised of collegiate players from around the U.S.
