We’re big fans of South Milwaukee Little League around the Brooks house.
From SMLL …
Registration for the 2016 season is now open. Come join one of the longest running little league organizations. South Milwaukee Little League is fueled by the passion of volunteers. Through volunteers we are able to foster 40 baseball/softball teams. Kids learn how to build relationship, work as a team but most of all, have fun playing ball! If this sounds great … come take a look at our website and learn more.
Opportunities are available for children ages 6-18.
Get more information and register at www.southmilwaukeell.org.
For those that might be interested in coaching, managing or umpiring please contact Bob Lubetski at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any other questions, please contact Southmilwaukeelittleleague@gmail.com.
See you there!
After Sunday’s Packers loss, it’s time to put football behind us … and think baseball!
Early registration for the 2015 South Milwaukee season is open now through Sunday, January 25. You can do so here …
If you are paying by check you would still need to register online.

I am a big fan of our Little League program and encourage you to consider it for your children.
My 10-year-old son is entering his fifth season in the program, and it has taught him so much, not just about baseball, but life. And it’s the group of hard-working volunteers, from coaches to concession workers, who make it happen.
This program is something all of South Milwaukee should be proud of.
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.
Brief opening day ceremonies follow. Then there’s a full slate of games.
- 1:30 Shakes vs Small Fries
- 2:30 Mets vs Brewers
- 4:30 A’s vs Yankees
- 1:30 Golden Arches vs McFlurries
- 2:30 Bees vs Emeralds
- 4:30 Blue Jays vs Brewers
- 1:30 McMuffins vs McNuggets
- 2:30 Blue Claws vs Red Wings
- 4:30 Iron Pigs vs Bulls
Please line the parade route and cheer on the kids — including my AAA boy! — and then stop by for some great baseball and fun.
We should cherish Little League in this community … it’s an important part of the fabric of this city. And Saturday is one of those special traditions that we should all embrace in South Milwaukee.
See you there!
The South Milwaukee Little League is one of the things that makes this community special. As the proud parents of a soon-to-be AAA player next year — AA All-Star in 2013! — my wife and I continue to be impressed with the organization and what they do.
And our son, Christian, loves it.

It was a good run for the South Milwaukee Little League Intermediate boys team, but their season is over.
The boys went 1-2 in three games in the Intermediate Central Regional.
Jerrianne Hayslett has the story in her New Kid’s blog.
Congratulations on a great season!
South Milwaukee’s boys of summer aren’t done yet.
The South Milwaukee Little League intermediate boys team (ages 11-13) beat West Bend Tuesday night to win the state title and advance to the Central Regional tournament in Millwood, Mich., this weekend. This puts them a few wins away from qualifying for the national tournament in San Francisco later this month.
This is a big deal. How big? It’s the first time in 35 years that any South Milwaukee Little League boys team at any level has advanced to regional competition.
The Little League intermediate level is designed to help older boys better transition from “traditional” Little League – those competing to play in the ESPN-televised World Series in Williamsport, Penn., each year – to more advanced levels like high school.
The team needs your help. They are seeking to raise money for the additional travel expenses.
Those interested in helping can contact Madeline McCarrier at 414-429-0001 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the tournament bracket. Go South Milwaukee!
