Muskegon Clippers Baseball Back For Second Season

Muskegon Clippers Baseball Back For Second Season

MUSKEGON, Mich., February 12, 2015 –Muskegon’s summer collegiate baseball team, the Muskegon Clippers, was a smashing success during its inaugural season in the summer of 2014. Smashing in more ways than one.  Not only did this wooden bat league defy the conventional wisdom of low scoring games but finished the year setting the leagues attendance record. The Clippers battled for the league championship right down to the last game of the year, where they just missed a chance to advance to the National Tournament.

 

The Muskegon Clippers, part of the Michigan Summer Collegiate Baseball League, is the brain child of local businessman and Clippers owner, Pete Gawkowski. Len Piasecki, president of the Muskegon Lakeshore Baseball Club, welcomed the summer tenant at historic Marsh Field.
