New lights for A’s
The Sheboygan Athletic Club has replaced the original lighting system at Wildwood Baseball Park, after years of trying to address the issue.
The new lights will be on display June 5, when the Sheboygan A’s have their first home game at night.
There are six poles – four are 90 feet high and two are 75 – with 82 LED fixtures hanging from them.
As a result of the new lights, as well as many other improvements to the field, Wildwood Park has been selected to host the 2020 American Legion State Tournament.

Wildwood to host events
In August, Wildwood Baseball Park will be the site for the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Academy and the Prep Baseball Report Showcase.
The Academy is open to children ages 6-14 and will be held Aug. 19-23.
THE PRB Showcase is open to high school players who are looking to get scouted to play in college.
“We are extremely excited to partner once again with the Brewers and Prep Baseball Report to bring these events back to Sheboygan,” A’s vice president C.J. Skelton said. “We continue to look for ways to utilize Wildwood Park and all it has to offer, and these events returning show how those organizations feel about the A’s and Wildwood Park. We once again look forward to these two events being successful.”
