horizontal rule

The Millers made it to the championship game of the AA bracket in the 2003 Roy Hobbs World Series but lost a tough game to the Dayton (OH) Wolves 12-7.  The game was closer than the score would indicate with the Millers ahead 6-4 going into the eighth inning.  See the Game Info page for more details on this, and all games.  


Welcome to the home of the Minneapolis Millers Baseball Team.  The Millers are a group of guys that play summer baseball for a variety of teams in the Twin Cities metro area.  They then come together to play fall baseball and travel to Fort Myers, Florida every November to play in the Roy Hobbs World Series.  In past years they have played under the name of the Minnesota Saints but, for 2003, there has been a name and uniform change.  The name was taken from the old minor league team that used to play at Nicollet Park in south Minneapolis.  To honor that team they have modeled their uniforms on that team's road uniform from the early 1950's.  On this page you can see the lettering on the uniforms and the emblem from the hats that they'll be wearing in Florida this year.  The old Millers team spent most of their tenure with the Giants organization but also worked with the Red Sox.  Some notable stars that played for the Millers  include Hall Of Famers Roger Bresnahan, Jimmy Collins, Urban 'Red' Faber, Bill McKechnie, George Kelly, Billy Herman, Ted Williams, Larry Gessler, Ray 'Dandy' Dandridge, Willie Mays, Zack Wheat,  Rube Waddell, Hoyt Wilhelm, Monte Irvin, Orlando Cepeda and Carl Yastrzemski.  And the great Jimmie Foxx was a Millers coach in 1958.

In the recent past, only one team from Minnesota has competed in the Open division of the Roy Hobbs World Series (as many as seven compete in the Veterans division) and that team has been the Saints.  In 2003 that team split into three teams with Larry Gessler continuing to run the Saints, Todd Cornelius and Scott Gatzke put the Millers together and Tim Doboszenski started a team called the Minnesota Bandits.  Over the course of the summer, as each team struggled to recruit players, it became clear that there were not enough to make three teams.  The result was that the Saints dropped out for this year and only the Millers and the Bandits will be traveling to Florida.  We will try to keep this website updated as much as possible during the Florida trip so that our fans at home can follow our progress through the tournament.
