Northwoods League to add 18th team next summer

KALAMAZOO, Mich. - The Northwoods League will add an 18th team next summer.

Kalamazoo is joining as an expansion club, after the city approved a five-year stadium lease this week. The team will play at Homer Stryker Field in Kalamazoo, which has not had any team play a schedule there since 2011.

It will be one of two expansion teams in the Northwoods League in 2014. Kenosha was added last winter. That team will be eighth from Wisconsin in a summer league that highlights some of the nation's best college players.
