2000: Rosalie Swanson of Richland was selected out of several entries in a contest to name the new Northwest League baseball franchise in Pasco, and the Tri-City Dust Devils were born. Swanson's submission edged out the Rattlers in a close decision. Other ideas for a mascot included the Fire, Black Sox, Triplets and Badgers. For her winning entry, Swanson earned season tickets for life.
1990: The Tri-City Americans set a club record with their seventh straight Western Hockey League victory, getting two goals apiece from Kyle Reeves and Brian Sakic in a 7-3 win over the Brandon Wheat Kings at Tri-City Coliseum. The Americans chased the WHL's top goalie -- Trevor Kidd, a future NHL starter -- with their seventh goal at 13:45 of the third period.
