There's a lot to be said for the Kalamazoo Growlers' guts this season. First place headed into the midway point, securing their spot in the Playoffs, no matter what. Then, a slump that sent them down to the low spot in the division, and the lowest seeded team in the Northwoods League Playoffs.

FRESCAS FOR EVERYONE!!!!

Congratulations to the Growlers!
