LA CROSSE, WIS. – Governor Evers announced today that the La Crosse Loggers are one of 17 recipients of a grant made available to minor league sports teams throughout Wisconsin as part of the Minor League Sports Grant that was announced last summer. The grants are funded by the American Rescue Plan of 2021.
Revenues in 2020, relative to what was received by the Loggers in 2019, were down almost 70%. While the 2021 season showed a trend towards a return to normalcy, the negative economic effects of the 2020 pandemic also carried over into a second season.
“We are grateful to the Governor and the Department of Administration for recognizing the hardship experienced by most businesses due to the pandemic and the grant will help the Logger organization continue to provide family affordable entertainment at Copeland Park & Events Center,” noted Loggers team president Chris Goodell.
Goodell continued, “As we prepare to celebrate our 20th Anniversary Season next summer, we are always fondly reminded that the continued support of our community partners and fans is the lifeblood of not only Loggers baseball, but for every sports team throughout Wisconsin.”
The Loggers will open their 2022 campaign in late May of next year. The 2022 Northwoods League schedule is set to be released later this month. Season tickets and ticket packages for the 20th anniversary season of Loggers Baseball are on sale now with information available at www.lacrosseloggers.com or by calling the Loggers ticket office at 608-796-9553. Fans can also visit the Loggers office at 1225 Caledonia Street, La Crosse between 8:30-5, Monday thru Friday.
