The Scouting Report
Before every Battle Creek Bombers season, the franchise has to assemble a team—a process that’s a bit like rounding up the kids from the neighborhood, if those kids were all collegiate stars and the neighborhood spanned the entire country. As the 2014 season reaches its end, the Bombers have benefited from the contributions of another crop of college bats and arms, including LSU pitchers Andrew Mitchell and Alden Cartwright, both of whom will represent the club in the Northwoods League All-Star game on August 5. After a summer in which they’ve seldom had a day off—a schedule designed to prepare players for life in the big-leagues or at a particularly busy landscaping company—Battle Creek plays its final home games of the 2014 season against the Madison Mallards on August 7 and 8.
Battle Creek Bombers
Founded in 2007, the Battle Creek Bombers didn’t waste any time to establish themselves as a force in the diamond, winning the Northwoods League Championship in 2011. The Northwoods League, one of the nation’s most competitive collegiate summer leagues, works like a summer internship for prospective big-leaguers. They play with wooden bats and the same baseballs used in the minors, so players can begin to adjust to life without the pop of balls flying off of aluminum bats to lull them to sleep every night. Since the team’s inception, a litany of former players have become every day players in the MLB.
While the players focus on the game, their mosquito mascot, Mo-Skeeter, mingles with roaring crowds in the Bomber’s home venue, C.O. Brown Stadium. The ballpark seats 4,500 and boasts picnic areas, playgrounds, and a massive outdoor sports bar for fans to visit between at-bats.
