The Milwaukee Milkmen, located in Franklin Wisconsin, will open their season on the road May 12th.
Last year was a good year for the Milkmen. However they were not 2022 playoff champions last season in the American Association of Professional Baseball. One would think that would be the goal for this year. Last year’s playoff champs were the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks. Milwaukee did have a strong season and expect to be competitive again. The club prides itself on a great game day experience.
