Milwaukee Area Baseball

Miller ParkWhen Major League Baseball went looking for representatives of great local baseball, they landed at Rock League Baseball. On June 18, the Mudhens and Angels were picked up and shuttled to Miller Park to play a game and be stars in an upcoming MLB Real Big Summer campaign by Pepsi.

Players got to dress in the Miller Park clubhouses, hear the National Ovation on the foul lines and play ball in one of the world's best venues. In what is a potential Championship match-up for the RLB 28+ division, the Mudhens edged the Angels 5 to 3 in their only meeting of the regular season.

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."

Rock League Baseball Champs2013 started out slow at The Rock as construction and rain caused several delays. However, as summer warmed up so did the baseball. 

Early on it was apparent that two of the Milwaukee Baseball League's perennial top teams could be on a collision course in the newly formed Rock League Baseball. By mid-August that is just what happened as both teams moved through the playoffs to face each other in the Championship for a rematch of the 2011 MBL Championship won by the Builders. This time it would be in a three-game series for the inaugural Rock League Baseball season championship.
