Well the Bears dropped the Outdoor Classic game to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, losing 5-2. Sure, it’s not the way Hershey fans wanted it to go, but it was still exciting to get to see the game played outside at Hersheypark Stadium. Let’s hope the weather is this perfect in 5 years for the 85th anniversary Outdoor Classic. 😉 Read the full-game recap for more.
