Each World Series team has a former Northwoods League player on the roster.

Chicago left fielder Ben Zobrist was 3-for-4 with a double in the Cubs' 6-0 loss in Game 1 on Tuesday in Cleveland. Indians rookie outfielder Tyler Naquin was on the bench.

Zobrist played for the Wisconsin Woodchucks in 2003. Naquin played for the Mankato Moondogs in 2010.

The Northwoods League, which added the Rivets for the 2016 season, has produced 160 major-league players since it opened in 1994.
