EUGENE, Ore. -- The Eugene Emeralds are heading to their third straight Northwest League Championship series. They’ll be playing against the Spokane Indians.

KEZI 9 News spoke with Allan Benavides, general manager with the Ems.

He said they will be hosting all the games at PK Park for the best of five series because Spokane’s stadium has other obligations.

Benavides said they have put in their orders for food and drinks and plan on selling more than 5,000 hotdogs, 600 helmets of ice cream and have 10 kegs of beer along with other food and beverages for one game alone.

However, he said their biggest obstacle for the championship series is making sure they have enough staff to serve their fans. But Benavides said his more than 80 employees are prepared for what's to come.

Benavides said there is still work to be done, but he hopes they can end their season on top.

"One of the things I’ve told them all season was that I love to buy champagne,” Benavides said. “I love to have the celebrations. They told me, 'Allan we're going celebrate.'"

The first game of the series is on Sunday at PK Park at 5 p.m.
