WE BELIEVE BASEBALL IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN.
AND THAT NO MATTER YOUR AGE, HAVING A GOOD TIME ON THE DIAMOND SHOULD NEVER END.
Sandlot represents a new era of recreational adult baseball that is accessible, affordable, and fun. When we're not playing in a head-to-head matchup or traveling on the road, we host pickup games in Milwaukee to bring our community together and encourage adults to get back on the field.
New team captains are selected for each game and are responsible for picking their own players. In order to foster a fair, community environment, teams are never pre-selected. These games are laid-back but competitive, and played with the same rules as any other baseball game. If we don't have enough players to throw a game together, we'll use the time to practice and prepare for our next matchup. If you're interested in joining our roster or playing with another team in the future, these pickup games are your best opportunity to get connected with us.
Every once in a while, the rules get switched up in order to accommodate the circumstances of that week. We've had teams of 6 vs. 6, played games with a net behind the dish instead of a catcher, and have even had teams borrow players from their competition for an inning. Why? Because that's sandlot baseball!
You do not need to be a member of the Bangers roster to play in a pickup game. However, you must fill out our registration form and submit a waiver in order to participate. We also require that you bring $5 to the field whenever you play in a game to contribute to our field rental and umpire costs.
