The Snappers are home for Fathers Day weekend. What great way to spend time with your dad! I know my boys and I will be spending at least a couple of days down there watching the Snappers. Friday and Saturday both have Fireworks following the game and Sunday is a Wobblehead giveaway. This does beg the question, what is a wobblehead. I honestly don't know.

Will be visiting my sister-in law in Wisconsin first week in July, we've got tickets to the July 7th game, really looking forward to it, especially after reading your reports!!

If anyone else is thinking about coming to Beloit I would reccomend tying "Summerfest" in. It is the worlds largest music festival, and Beloit is at home pretty much the whole time Summerfest is going on.

Sounds like a great, great trip. Summerfest is great, btw. Imagine going from that small stadium, and working your way up to bigger and bigger parks, and then the shock that must be the first time you walk onto a MLB field....

We will be there in a week to see the Snappers play at home and in Cedar Rapids in two weeks. I am really looking forward to seeing those guys.

Good stuff. Sounds like you got some dirt about the attendance (which is btw the smallest in pro ball this side of low Rookie leagues). Care to share?

The one bright side about the attendance is at least Burlington has led the MWL for lowest attendance the last 20 years.......

That was fun to read Seth. I love seeing the ball players in their early development stages too. Can't wait to read your "scouting report."
