LAS VEGAS TOURNAMENT ROLLS SNAKE EYES

The Millers headed to Sin City but they didn't play in the Roy Hobbs tournament.  We're not really sure exactly what happened but it turned out there were only two teams set to play in the 28+ division: the Millers and the Minnesota Bandits.  We managed to schedule four games with local Las Vegas teams, however, to salvage something of the weekend.  Check out the Game Info page for details on how we did.  I'd like to thank Larry Bergren who runs the MSBL in Las Vegas for helping me organize these 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 also come together for a few games during the summer as well as playing a full fall league schedule before they travel to Fort Myers, Florida to play in the Roy Hobbs World Series.  In past years they have played under the name of the Minnesota Saints but in 2003 there was a management shakeup that led to 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 uniform from the early 1950's.

The old Millers team played in the American Association from 1902 to 1960 and spent most of their tenure with the Red Sox and Giants organizations.  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, 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.
