Olympia attorney and Tacoma native Bret Woody shows off some of his growing collection of Tacoma Rainiers gear. He’s particularly fond of the hat featuring the solitary R. “It’s just a way to represent my city. I love Tacoma,” Woody said of his collection.
Former manager Dan Rohn said it couldn't be done, but on Sept. 1, 2004, Rainiers first baseman A.J. Zapp became the first player to hit a home run over the giant 29-foot centerfield wall in Cheney Stadium.
