The American Association of Independent Professional Baseball formally welcomed Mike Zimmerman, Chief Executive Officer of ROC Ventures and Ballpark Commons, into the league at a press conference held February 27, 2018 at Franklin City Hall.  Mayor Olson kicked off the press conference for Wisconsin's newest professional baseball team emphasizing the positive impacts the development could mean to the community and how nice it is that the $130,000,000 development has been pursued by a Franklin resident.  Ballpark Commons, a mixed-use development featuring a 4,000-seat stadium, commercial and retail businesses, restaurants, residential apartments, and various entertainment and active lifestyle features is expected to begin construction in 2018. Representatives of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, who will share the field, also participated and acknowledged what the value of having a quality field will bring to their NCAA Division 1 team. 


Taking advantage of the occasion, Zimmerman invited the team's future fans to give the team a name and announced a "Name the Team Contest" with a $2,500 prize.  "The stadium at Ballpark Commons is being designed as a tribute to Wisconsin agriculture and farming families," noted Zimmerman, "so we'll be looking for those types of themes".  Fans are invited to go to www.baseballwi.com by Tuesday, April 24th, to enter their choice for a team name, as well as mascot suggestions.  Click here for more information on the Ballpark Commons Development.
