Who Purchased the ballpark?
TC Baseball LLC, a group of community minded investors led by the West Michigan Whitecaps, have purchased the stadium and team from the current owners.
Are the previous owners still involved?
After the sale the former owners are no longer involved with the operation of the facility or the team.
What is going to happen to the Beach Bums?
Because the team will be joining the NWL in 2019 the Beach Bums Frontier League franchise will be discontinued.
Why are you moving from professional to collegiate baseball?
While the Frontier League is considered professional baseball, it is largely composed of players who have been released from affiliated baseball. The NWL, however, is composed of top tier prospects who will be drafted by Major League teams shortly after playing in the NWL. As a NWL franchise TC will have significantly better players earlier in their career. This creates a more exciting brand of baseball and the potential for TC alumni playing Major League Baseball.
What league will the team play in?
For the 2019 season TC will be joining the Northwoods League (NWL). The NWL is the countries premier collegiate wooden bat league. For more information on the NWL go to www.northwoodsleague.com.
