Beloit Snappers

From BR Bullpen


Team History[edit]

The Beloit Snappers have been a member of the Midwest League since 1982. For over two decades, they were a farm club of the Milwaukee Brewers, and through 1994, the club was called the Beloit Brewers. In 2005, the team became an affiliate of the Minnesota Twins. Since the club's inception, their ballpark has been Pohlman Field.

Currently, the Snappers are working on plans for a new stadium in Janesville, Wisconsin (which is right next to Beloit) with former Milwaukee Bucks owner Jim Fitzgerald. He said that the Snappers would be more for Rock County than just Janesville and the team could be renamed the Rock County Rockers.
