Professional baseball is coming to Oconomowoc next year.
A ownership team consisting of Waukesha County natives Tom Kelenic, Sonny Bando, Tim Neubert, and Tony Bryant announced Monday the team will be ready to play in the American Association of Professional Baseball in the 2022 season.
“I’ve think we’ve created a lot of buzz out there,” says team CEO Tom Kelenic. “It’s been something that we have been working on for the past four years. We felt that, looking at the overall area, what would be our next move. The rich history in the Oconomowoc area and baseball; we thought that getting into a competitive league would be not only good for us, but good for the community and move forward with our development.”
