The Scouting Report
As the Wingnuts slide into their sixth season as a member of the American Association, manager Kevin Hooper directs his team's collective sights toward a third consecutive playoff run. Consistently in contention, the 2012 Central Division winners reloaded an already stocked roster with several acquisitions during the off-season, including outfielder Derek Perren, who hit .327 while scoring 45 runs, stealing 10 bases, and selling 438 hotdogs last season.
While the Wingnuts clamor cleat to cleat with opponents, fans can pack Lawrence-Dumont Stadium—or, the Nuthouse—during nearly 50 home games throughout the summer, starting with the home opener on May 16. Season-long promotions, which will be announced closer to opening day, add extra energy to each game, further inspiring crowd-wide waves and moments of silence for broken bats.
Though they've only been a member the American Association since 2008, the Wichita Wingnuts have been one of the most consistent programs in the league. Following some fine-tuning after their first season, the team has posted a winning record every year since 2009, reaching the playoffs three times in five campaigns. The Wingnuts play their home games at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, which hosted the National Baseball Congress World Series in 1935 and is still going on due to an umpire's filibuster.
