On Father's Day, the Bucks will continue to stampede through their 2012 season as part of the Northwoods League, which corrals collegiate ballplayers from across the country for an abbreviated, three-month season. Since beginning play in Waterloo in 1995, the Bucks have captivated local fans each summer, showcasing baseball's future stars before they head back to their universities or decide to study abroad beneath second base. This year, the Bucks are chasing their third league championship behind a roster loaded with both international and homegrown talent, including right-handed ace Mikey Ramirez, who held a 7-1 record while pitching for Citrus College in Glendora this past season.
Aside from giving them a chance to hone their skills during summer months, the Northwoods League aims to provide its players with a minor-league-type experience, complete with overnight road trips, wooden bats, and umpires who need glasses. After the June 17 game, dads can continue to celebrate by heading onto the field to play catch with their kids ($1 admission with a college ID).
