Though baseball season is already underway in Milwaukee and the Brewers currently sit in first place a few weeks into the season, there’s another team in the region that’s getting ready to take the field. Yes, the Lakeshore Chinooks will begin their ninth season of Northwoods League baseball on May 30, with a home opener scheduled on Friday, June 3.
Beyond the high-caliber play of collegiate standouts at Kapko Park in Mequon, the three-month season also offers fans a number of promotions to help spice up the semi-professional ballgames.
