The team opens their season on May 10th at home.
The Team Added a Good Infielder
The Milkmen have always been competitive in the American Association of Professional Baseball. That is because they continue to add quality roster pieces like Yeison Santana.
Santana has 5 seasons of experience both with the Padres and Cubs organizations, playing in their Rookie, A, and High A league. While in the minors, he recorded 98 RBIs and a .274 AVG. For the Milkmen you’d really expect him to hit and steal bases.
That is good news because the team recently lost star Bryan Torres to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Torres led all of the American Association of Professional baseball in batting, averaging .370 on the season. Teammate Roy Morales was second in the AA, hitting .360.
He played in 90 games and had 359 AB’s, garnering 133 base hits. He was known all throughout the AA as a “tough out”.
The Team has really bolstered their pitching depth
Mark Simon is coming aboard to help handle some pitching duties. Simon has played the last three seasons in the Northwest and Pioneer leagues where he threw for 14 wins, a 3.54 ERA, and 179 strikeouts. He is expected to be a starter for the team.
The Milkmen also added Pablo Garabitos. He was drafted in the 25th Round of the 2018 draft by the Milwaukee Brewers.
Last year’s “play of the year” was recently announced by the American Association. You can view it below.
And the 2022 Play of the Year goes to…

This was the best year of American Association baseball yet, and 2023 is shaping up to be even better!

As the season continues, something to watch for is what individual players will get “promoted” and moved up to the minor leagues and/or get a shot to play for the MLB. Keep your eyes here as we’ll update fans on roster moves.
The Milkmen are located at 7035 S Ballpark Drive in Franklin, WI. Five game “mini-packages” are now available via their website
