Milwaukee Area Baseball

Good Wood Leads Beavers To RLB Championship

RLB ChampsThe Milwaukee Beavers and Brown Deer Supreme Builders met for game three of a three game series on Sunday night with both teams gunning for a title. The Builders sought their fifth in five tries, the Beavers their first in four tries. The stands at The Rock Sports Complex in Franklin were packed with a crowd that made the atmosphere fun and reminded people what amateur baseball was all about.

With both teams coming out swinging, the game started with the same early story as so many between these two had, an early lead for the Builders. Both teams knew going in thought that this would be a wire to wire competition, their respect level after these past four years of battling assured that. In the end, a champion emerged.

Beavers Tie RLB Championship Series, Force Deciding Game

Rock League Baseball ChampionshipThe Milwaukee Beavers trailing in Rock League Baseball's championship series 1-0, started Saturday night with a thud. The Beavers made a two out error in the first inning to load the bases which allowed the Builders a second chance to score. The defending champs responded with RBI hits by Kris Franzen and Matt Cook. After one inning, things looked bleak for the Beavers as they trailed four to zero.

The Beavers pulled it together in the second though and held the Builders scoreless. Then, in the bottom of the inning, the Beavers bats woke up. Rob Tschimperle and Tyler Schoen worked walks to put runners on base. Jarrett Gates, playing with the confidence of a determined short old fat man, then used the entire field to spray a single to right. Garrick Day followed by hitting into a close double play, but putting the Beavers on the board. Timbo Garceau followed with a walk - one of five on the night and six in a row since hitting a monster home run in game 1 - to put runners on the corner. Brett Youngbeck singled on the infield to score a run and was followed by one of Justin Barkhurst's four hits to plate another. At the end of two innings it was 4-3 Builders and a slug fest was developing.

Builders Jump Out to 1-0 Series Lead vs Beavers

Come out to the ballparkBrown Deer Supreme Builders jumped out to a 1-0 Rock League Baseball championship series Wednesday night by holding onto an early lead and riding Kevin Wild's arm. In the first, Wild kept Beaver leadoff hitter Tim Garceau from scoring after he reached on a single and was sacrificed to second by Brett Youngbeck. Wild then went on to keep the Beavers off the board until the 6th while his Builder teamates built up a 4 - 0 lead.

In the first, the Builders wouldn't quit with two outs and got a single from Joel Sharon to put a runner on base. DJ Pelz worked an 0-2 count for a walk and brought Danny Krause to the plate. Krause hit a 1-0 pitch to strong armed Beaver centerfielder Garceau who threw to the plate in an effort to nab Sharon, but just missed as the Builders took a lead they would not relinquish.

In the bottom of the second, Builder Matt Cook led off with a walk and was followed by a walk to Eric Belter - a hero in the championship in 2011 - to put runners on first and second with none out. Mike Krause followed with a ground ball to third which was mishandled, loading the bases with no outs. Kris Franzen was able to get a run across with a sac fly to left field and the Builders scored their third on an infield single to the shortstop by Joel Sharon.

The Builders finished their scoring in the third following a leadoff single by Danny Krause. After Krause took second on a passed ball and third on a fielders choice, he scored on misplayed ground ball hit by Cook.

Wisconsin Amateur Baseball Classic

Top Tier Amateur Baseball Tournament Hosted in West Bend

Wisconsin ClassicAs the weather warms up in Wisconsin so does the hardball.  When most people think of Wisconsin baseball they picture the Brewers or Timber Rattlers.  Those pro games are great, but nothing compares to the atmosphere of a town ball game.  There are no big contracts on the line or endorsements just the love of the game.  Growing up in Minnesota I can remember going to our local town ball games.  The parents would drink beer and the kids would fight over foul balls all while cheering on the team.  I would aspire to one day play on that same field and later I would. A lot of memories were made at and on that ball field that I will never forget.

This same great amateur baseball atmosphere was the goal of Jim Ziegler when he began planning the Wisconsin Amateur Baseball Classic (WABC).   Jim is a long time local amateur baseball player and Manager for the Kewaskum A’s.

Homers Galore at The Rock

Rock League Baseball is starting to heat up in the Milwaukee area. The bats are warming up too as teams move past the one-third mark and start to position for the playoffs.

NateOn Sunday, June 15th in the over 28 division, Nate Boman set a league record by blasting 3 home runs leading The Mudhens past the Dukes. On the day, Boman had 4 hits, 4 runs scored and 6 rbi in an 18 to 8 victory. Not a bad Father's Day for this poppa of two.

Not to be outdone, something we haven't even heard of was accomplished a few hours later by Evan Greco of the Brewers over 18 club. Taking advantage of loose pitching, strange circumstances and a sweet swing, Greco clubbed four home runs, nailing a solo shot, whacking two run bomb, splashing a three run dinger and blasting a grand salami to hit for the "home run cycle."
