Team Bio[edit]

The Battle Creek Bombers are a 2007 expansion team to the Northwoods Summer Collegiate Baseball League. The Bombers are dedicated and designed to providing minor league level competition for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball. The Battle Creek Bombers operate under the model of a Minor League team: playing nightly in stadiums which seat thousands of fans, using wood bats and minor league specification equipment, and experiencing road trips across the upper Midwest United States between games. Bombers players are unpaid, which gives them the opportunity to experience the rigors of professional baseball without going pro so that they can maintain their NCAA eligibility. The Battle Creek Bombers live with host families in the same manner as Single A and Independent League players.

The Battle Creek Bombers play their home games at C.O. Brown Stadium which for the previous eleven seasons was a home to teams in the Single A Midwest League.
