Kalamazoo getting new baseball team

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP/WZZM) - A new baseball team is scheduled to start playing next summer in Kalamazoo and a contest is taking place to find a name for the club. 

The team calling Homer Stryker Field home will be a member of the Northwoods League, a summer league made up of teams of top college players from North America.

Submissions will be accepted on the team's website until Sept. 30. Five finalists will be put to an online vote to determine the winner.

The grand prize winner will get season tickets for life along with a jersey and hat, and the honor of throwing out the first pitch at the home opener. Other prizes are being offered as part of the contest.
