Wisconsin's largest adult amateur baseball league. The league started in 1929 and now has grown to 46 teams in south-central Wisconsin.

The Ashippun Trap

Doug Welch, manager of the Milton Raptors in the Home Talent Night League, has written an exciting new baseball novel that captures the essence of 1960s-era amateur baseball hustlers and the final season of the Braves in Milwaukee.

The Ashippun Trap A Novel of Baseball and the Milwaukee Braves Final Season, set in Southern Wisconsin’s Rock River amateur baseball league in 1965, was released in January by Texas book publisher Black Rose Writing. The book blends baseball fiction with baseball fact to paint a portrait of life in the Rock River League when teams in small towns such as Ashippun, located near Oconomowoc, routinely drew several hundred fans each Sunday. The popularity of small-town baseball often blurred the lines between amateur and pro players and Rock River League players and team managers could hustle the game for their own financial gain.
