OCONOMOWOC – Construction crews are moving dirt at the site of the baseball field being built by Blue Ribbon Baseball as the ownership group reaches out to the community for inspiration on the team’s name.
According to a press release, the Lake Country team will begin play in 2022 in the American Association of Professional Baseball – an official partner league of Major League Baseball. It will play in the same league as the Milwaukee Milkmen and Chicago Dogs to go with nine other teams in the region and in Canada.
“The group feels the teams in the American Association of Professional Baseball will consistently bring Triple A talent to the field and are honored to be part of such a high level league,” the release states.
