Hops, cartwheel and jump: AJ gets a Bobblehead


AJ McCord had her Bobblehead Night at the Hillsboro Hops game Thursday

HILLSBORO, Ore. (KOIN) — Two years after the Hillsboro Hops invited members of the media to throw out the first pitch for a chance to have a bobblehead in their honor, KOIN 6 Sports anchor AJ McCord gets her due.

In 2019, AJ stepped to the mound, did a one-handed cartwheel and then fired a strike to home plate. That unique delivery earned her the votes (and admiration) of the sporting community.

Thursday, the Hops honored AJ with her own bobblehead. She also threw out the first pitch again — and did another cartwheel.
