This was the Portland Beavers' "Oregon Chess Recognition Night."

Chuck Schulien, the highest rated chess player in Oregon played a 16 board simul before the quads started.

The 2009 Oregon State Champion Carl Haessler of Lake Oswego, Oregon threw out the first pitch before the baseball game between the Portland Beavers of the Pacific Coast League and the Las Vegas 51s team.

Winners of each quad received their awards on the field before the game and were announced to the crowd at the ball park. Attendance for the chess event and the baseball game was hurt by the temperatures on that day of the event, over 100 degrees.
