The Northwoods League All-Star Game took place in Madison, Wis. on July 24. A little more than 6,000 fans packed Warner Park to watch the North Division All-Stars and South Division All-Stars battle for bragging rights. It was Madison’s second time hosting the event in four years.
The “Duck Pond” is a great atmosphere for baseball and one of the great venues of the Northwoods League and it doesn’t go unnoticed to visitors of the ballpark. Perfectgame.org’s Patrick Ebert took in the 2012 All-Star Game in Madison and shared his thoughts on the event and venue in his article, “The Northwoods crown jewel”.
The Northwoods League has more teams, plays more games, and draws more fans than any other Summer Collegiate Baseball League in North America. The League has 16 teams in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, and Ontario.
