2009 was a tough season for Wisconsin teams (yes, I know the Brewers still have 13 games left but I’ve decided to focus on 2010 now)…FlickrPhoto-byKevinDooley

Milwaukee Brewers
Currently 12.5 games behind the Central Division leaders St. Louis Cardinals, the Brewers split their series against the Cubs at Wrigley last week before sweeping the Astros over the weekend .  This week, the Cubs head north to take on the Brewers at Miller Park – care to join us for a little WI/ IL rivalry?  We currently have tickets available in our group for Wednesday’s game: Great rates for great seats!  Drop me an email if you’re interested…

Wisconsin Timber Rattlers
Although they finished with a 58-81 record, more than 20 games behind the 1st place Peoria Chiefs, the Rattlers set a new attendance record this season with more than 250,000 fans heading through their gates in 09.

Beloit Snappers
With a record of 57-83, the Beloit Snappers finished in last place in the MID Western division, just 1.5 games behind the Rattlers.

A look ahead to 2010

baseball-imageOkay, the Milwaukee Brewers have opened to a less-than-stellar 2-5 record, losing 2 of 3 this past weekend to those hateful Chicago Cubs, but there’s still 155 games left in their season…

For those who think a trip to Miller Park is too expensive this year, there are over a dozen different deals available to fans throughout the summer at the Brewers’ Fan Value Corner.  Check out the Brewers’ 2009 game schedule, then click on over to WisconsinLodging.info to plan your Milwaukee-area baseball getaway!

Next, head north to Appleton to catch the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in action.  Formerly the Appleton Foxes, the Seattle Mariners’ minor league affiliate, Alex Rodriguez (yes, the Yankees’ & Madonna’s A-Rod) made his professional debut with the team in 1994!  Now the Class A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, the Timber Rattlers are off to a strong 3-0 start this season.  Click on over to see their full 2009 schedule and start thinking getaway to the Fox Cities.

In the southern Wisconsin town of Beloit, on the Wisconsin/ Illinois border you’ll find the Beloit Snappers, the Class A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.  The Snappers are also off to a rough start so far with an 0-3 record to date, but they return to Pohlman Field on April 16th for a 4 day series against the equally struggling Burlington Bees.  If you can’t make it to Beloit this weekend, see the Snappers full schedule here and plan your summer road trip to see the team in action. There are amazing places to stay in Beloit including both the Fairfield Inn & Suites and The Beloit Inn.
