  • Northwoods League opens play this week

    The Mankato Moondogs of the Northwoods League, a summer wood bat league for college players (like the better-known Cape Cod League,) starts up this week. They're being allowed 100% of capacity attendance at Franklin Rogers Park. I have tickets for Wednesday night. Should be fun.

    Thanks for supporting minor league baseball. In my neck of the woods (Washington DC area), a former Baltimore Orioles affiliate in Frederick, Maryland is now part of the MLB Draft League, or MLB's official college wood bat league. I will be making it out to a game later this summer and I plan for it to be my 3 year old daughter's first-ever baseball game.

      I went to a Northwoods game in Traverse City MI a couple of years ago and had a blast.

        I live in Madison, where the Mallards have historically led the NWL with attendance averaging 6,000. Super fun atmosphere. Seats repurposed from Camden Yards and Wrigley.

          How do you suppose the other teams in the league get to Traverse City - do they drive through the UP or do they take the car ferry over?

            Maybe they fly. I've done it. I think the airport is named Cherry Field or something like that.

              And the Moondogs beat the St. Cloud Rox 3-1. A beautiful evening, temperatures in the mid 70s, low humidity, nice breeze. A great time. Already looking forward to the next game in my five-game package.
