GIANT Bear Numbers in Hershey

These Bears continue to dominate the Bear Tossing World.

Nearly 75,000 bears were tossed onto the ice as the Hershey Bears continue to mark their turf as the preeminent Teddy Bear Toss team in hockey.  The team averages just less than 8500 fans, so the average fans is bringing 9 bears to game to add to the plush pandemonium.

While Hershey leads hockey in Tossed Bears, we lead the internet in Teddy Bear Toss coverage, best practices and insight.  Check out all these tagged stories on Gameops.com.
