Since May, the Mallards have worked to deliver another season’s worth of Northwoods League competition in their home habitat, The Duck Pond at Warner Park. Enjoy a prime view of the diamond in field-box seats while internally rationalizing baseball’s subtle immoralities, such as stealing, hitting, and sacrificing. The main concession stand boasts traditional ballpark fare, whereas Stoddard’s Smokehouse offers meaty items such as a smoked-brisket sandwich. Fans in line for frothy suds can still ogle skillful pitches, on-field promotions, and divine interventions from celestial outfielders thanks to the full-color video board and the 14 HDTVs speckled throughout the park. The recent extensive renovation includes additional legroom, improved sightlines, and comfy stadium seats with backs and cup holders.
Like a grandmotherly umpire’s abode, The Duck Pond at Warner Park boasts a family area where kids can play in a large sandbox and bear-hug roaming mascots. After games, Mallards players congregate at this family area to sign autographs and chat with fans before they depart the stadium in symmetrical V-formations. Fans can accompany complimentary headgear with accessories from the team’s online merchandise store.
The Madison Mallards take to the diamond each summer for three months of collegiate baseball, gathering players from across the country as they can hone their skills for a shot at the pros. The Mallards took home Northwoods League championships in 2004 and 2013, cheered on by some of the most devout and rowdy fans in the league. Fans that helped the team set a collegiate attendance record in 2012, drawing in more than 217,000 fans.
