The Stingers will play each of the nine other division opponents eight times – four home, and four away – to comprise the 72 game schedule.
“There are so many components that go into delivering an exciting and entertaining Northwoods League baseball season, and a key one is the creation of the League’s game schedule,” said Northwoods League President and Commissioner Gary Hoover.  “Once it is created you can’t help but to start counting the days until baseball season starts again.”
