It has been an amazing year Larks Fans and we could not have done it without you. COVID-19 didn’t stand in our way and we played an outstanding 72 home games while hosting 3 teams this past season! That is only beginning of all the FUN that took place at the ballpark in 2020…
We want to share with you the Top 10 Moments of the 2020 Season!
#1 72 Game Season with Fans
We didn’t let a pandemic stand in the way of our season. Thanks to the support of all of our fans we were able to play and finish a 72-game season (Plus 3 Playoff Games) against all odds. We couldn’t have done it without all of you!
#2 Larks Win Championship
Sweet, sweet victory. The Bismarck Larks earned their first championship win at the end of the season winning 2 out of the 3-game series against the Mandan Flickertails.
#3 3 Team Season
Provided 111 collegiate athletes with the opportunity to play baseball by developing a 3-team pod made up of the Bismarck Larks, Bismarck Bull Moose, and Mandan Flickertails.
#4 Wyatt Ulrich Breaks Record
Mr. Lark, the Mayor, Wyatt… no matter what you call him, Wyatt Ulrich is a Lark icon AND the NWL runs record holder. In the first inning of his record-breaking game, it didn’t take long for Mr. Lark to take a walk, steal second and advance to third, placing himself in scoring position. A wild pitch sent him sprinting across the plate.
#5 2 Players Sign with MLB
Bismarck Bull Moose 3rd baseman, Torin Montgomery signed with the Miami Marlins and Mandan Flickertails pitcher, John Wilson signed with the Minnesota Twins.
#6 Tim Simoes Grand Slam
In his very first game with the Bismarck Larks, Tim Simoes made an impression. During his first at bat, he hit a GRAND SLAM! Now that really brings a new meaning to the term home run hitter!
#7 Pikachu Dance Crew
The Pikachu Dance Crew took to the green with some electrifying dance moves this season that sparked joy among the crowd. What will they do next season?
#8 Jersey Auctions Break Record
