Kalamazoo Growlers

KALAMAZOO, MI – It takes a single look at the Northwoods League standings to see that the Kalamazoo Growlers are not off to a stellar start in 2015. A team that begins the season 4-12 needs a win to switch the momentum, badly. A win where your team is trailing 11-1 in the bottom of the ninth, only to score 11 runs of your own to win 12-11? No, that sounds like nonsense. That would be the largest comeback in Northwoods League history. (Growlers' website)

KALAMAZOO, MI – If the Kalamazoo Growlers were to designate a kryptonite for this 2015 squad so far, it would be the early innings. Again the Kingfish of Kenosha attacked early, scoring 11 runs in the first three innings to an eventual 12-8 victory over Kalamazoo. (Kalamazoo Growlers website)
