Saturday is one of my favorite days of the year: South Milwaukee Little League Opening Day.

The festivities start with a parade at noon. It leaves from 12th Milwaukee, heads east on Milwaukee to Ninth, then south to Drexel, then east into Little League Park.

Quick aside: How many communities actually have a parade like this? To me, it’s one of the things that makes South Milwaukee special. 

Brief opening day ceremonies follow for the parade. Then there’s a full slate of games.

Diamond #1

  • 1:00 Golden Arches vs. Big Macs
  • 2:00 Red Sox vs. Yankees
  • 4:00 Braves vs. Brewers

Diamond #2

  • 1:00 McFlurries vs. Cheeseburgers
  • 2:00 White Sox vs. Phillies
  • 4:00 Mets vs. Pirates

Diamond #3

  • 1:00 Small Fries vs. McMuffins
  • 2:00 Diamondbacks vs. Blue Jays
  • 4:00 Astros vs. Tigers

    Hello Mayor Erik Brooks! This is a South Milwaukee resident messaging you. I’m messaging you about new reinvention for the city of South Milwaukee. South Milwaukee is a great city and the people here are nice too. I also love the houses here too. There are some major ideas i have to make the city a better and more wonderful place! One thing i will say is that we need a place like Drexel town square in SM. That will help the city tremendously. We also need modern restaurants in downtown to fill up those open spaces of buildings. Downtown looks really sad and ghostly, but if you decide to create more things, this. city has the potential to become even more great. We need to get rid of the bad stores and stores that get no business for ex: there is a liquor store right by the Rawson Elementary school. I don’t want for bad people and the children at the elementary schools to be so close to each other. Instead add something for the kids to gather around after school or go on the morning before school like a Starbucks. You are only person I’m counting on to make the city a better place. We need modern stores and shops for people to come downtown! Some restaurants that you should put downtown is: Naf Naf grill, Bravo Cucina, and other modern restaurants. We need to repair any broken roads and remodel the buildings on the outside to make it more appealing to visitors. We need to make hotels for the people visiting here! Radisson Hotels would be great here! This would make me and the city extremely happy and thankful. I really think you are one of the best mayors we’ve ever had! I’m really inspired by your work and i hope that you and the city make these decisions to help South Milwaukee prosper! Thank you for everything! I hope that microbrewery will blast off the SM development.

    Clark I’m sure the mayor would welcome
    These businesses coming to south Milwaukee.
    South Milwaukee does not have 100 acre lots available Like the city of oak creek to build
    Hotels and large development programs.
    We need to focus on what we have and enforce some of the city codes on run down properties. Grants for businesses on Milwaukee ave to help get something going. Oak creek will never have that small town feel like south Milwaukee has and has had for many years
    We have lots of opportunity here to improve so let’s use what we have and make the best of it.
