oilmen baseball all star game whiting indiana

Northern League All Star Game is Tue. July 18th at Oilmen Stadium

       The Northern League’s all-star game, which again will be hosted by the Northwest Indiana Oilmen at Whiting’s Oil City Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. Tuesday, July 18th, 2023.  The clubs are primarily made up by top-tier, college-eligible and minor league prospects from all over the country.   

    The Northern League provides and promotes premier summer collegiate baseball to communities across the Midwest, providing family-oriented, affordable entertainment at the highest levels of integrity while operating in a socially-responsible manner. The baseball players compete at some of top baseball programs not only in Midwest, but across the country. They come to the NL to play with wood bats, improve their skills and perform in front of Major League Baseball Scouts and local fans.

         The Northern League, which was founded in 2010, has expanded its players beyond current and incoming college baseball talent. Now, players who have finished their college eligibility — and even some with limited pro experience — are scattered throughout the Northern League.

     The teams are part of the local fabric of the community and encourage various groups and businesses to gather at the ballpark for events that promote their business and their support the sport of baseball.  Affordable tickets, concessions, and merchandise mean families can enjoy NL baseball for far less than a Major League Baseball game. It’s players are approachable, enthusiastic role models. Northern League baseball is what baseball was meant to be for Midwest communities large and small.

    The NL is a six-team, pre-professional wood bat summer baseball league with teams based in Indiana. The NL plays a 55-game regular season schedule in addition to holding an All-Star Game and playoffs for the top four teams. 
     

   The Northern League consists of six teams:

  • Elkhart County Miracle: 14 Wins – 20 Losses;
    Griffith Generals: 9 Wins – 22 Losses;
    Indiana Panthers: 14 Wins – 18 Losses;
    Lake County Corn Dogs: 21 Wins – 9 losses;
    Northwest Indiana Oilmen: 21 Wins – 11 losses;
    Southland Vikings: 17 Wins – 16 losses. 
       The Corn Dogs are now 21-9 (2023) and in sole position of first place in the league. But the NWI Oilmen are only percentage points behind on the Corn Dogs and face them Tuesday, July 11th at Legacy Fields in Crown Point. The Elkhart County Miracle joined prior to the 2023 campaign with play running from late May through the playoffs in early August. The wwner appreciates being able to provide more opportunities for players and aspiring broadcasters by running the Vikings and Generals in addition to the Oilmen. The Generals just moved to Griffith Indiana this year from Joliet IL. And the Lake County Corn Dogs, out of Crown Point, are in their second year, having first started in 2022.
       “They’ve been a great addition to our league,” Northern League Commissioner Don Popravak said of the Corn Dogs. “The community has really embraced the new team,” continued Don.
