Founded in 1994 as one of the original five members of the Northwoods League, the Rochester Honkers are a Summer Collegiate Baseball team based out of Rochester, MN. the Honkers, who play their home game in Mayo Field, are dedicated and designed to providing minor league level competition for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball. The Honkers 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. Honkers are given the opportunity to experience the rigors of professional baseball without going pro so that they can maintain their NCAA eligibility. The Rochester Honkers live with host families in the same manner as Single A and Independent League players.
The Honkers went on to a 31-15 season in their inaugural season and became the first Northwoods League Champions. Since that point, the Honkers have gone on to several playoff appearances and championships, and have gone on to become the most successful and popular team in the history of Rochester baseball.
