With the break for the MLB All-Star Game this week, now’s a good time as any to check in on Wisconsin’s baseball teams…

Milwaukee BrewersFielder-Brewers
Having won only 3 of their last 10 games, the Brewers are still hanging on to the number 2 spot, just 2.5 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals.  Great ticket deals are still available including the State Fair/ Brewers Doubleheader: 2 Terrace Reserved tickets to a Brewers game and 2 WI State Fair tickets for $24.  Interesting trivia: Did you know a scene from the movie Major League, filmed at the old Milwaukee County Stadium, was actually the impetus for relief pitcher Trevor Hoffman’s “Hell’s Bells” musical intro?

Brewers-RattlersWisconsin Timber Rattlers

The Timber Rattlers are also currently in second place, just 1.5 games behind the Cedar Rapids Kernals.  Click on over to their site and check out ticket packages such as their “Fang-tastic” Brewers/Rattlers package for $15.  Also, Brewers hall of famer, Paul Molitor will be in attendance signing autographs prior to the Rattlers game on Tuesday, August 4th.  Just in case you were wondering as to the team’s level of talent, five MLB All-Star players this year have formerly played for the Rattlers.

Beloit SnappersBeloit-Snappers
Currently in last place in the MidWestern division, the Snappers have only won 6 of their 17 games to date.  But, as the Class A affiliate for the MN Twins, should we feel too badly for them?  There are lots of fun promotions still on the Snappers calendar including this interesting one… “Salute to the Mustache Night” complete with Fireworks!

Northwoods League Ball
Overall standings for Wisconsin’s Northwoods League teams in the South Division:
1st Place, 29-15: La Crosse Loggers
3rd Place, 25-19: Madison Mallards
4th Place, 23-18: Eau Claire Express
5th Place, 18-25: Green Bay Bullfrogs
7th Place, 14-30: Wisconsin Woodchucks

Lots of fun and affordable promotions are still on the calendar this summer including “Youth Baseball Night” for the Eau Claire Express and Simpson’s 20th Anniversary Night – anyone named Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa or Maggie receives free admission for the Madison Mallards game on July 30th!

Vintage-Base-BallVintage Base Ball
Nope, that’s not a typo – Base Ball was originally two words!  Load up the family and head out to Old World Wisconsin to see the Eagle Diamonds take on either the Milwaukee Grays (July 18th) or the Greenbush Dead Citys (August 15th).  Teams recreate “the styles, speech, rules and terminology of the 1860s game” playing without gloves and in replica baggy uniforms.

As always, click on over to WisconsinLodging.info and begin planning your next Wisconsin baseball getaway!
