MIDLAND, Mich. -- It may be the middle of July, but we're already starting to get Midwest League Playoff fever around here! After the Great Lakes Loons clinched the MWL Eastern Division Championship in the 1st half of the season, it was a guarantee there would be playoff baseball in Midland for yet another year.
This season, the Loons will take on the Lake County Captains to kick off the 2019 Midwest League Playoffs presented by MidMichigan Health. The division semifinals will begin on the road in Eastlake, Ohio before the series shifts to Dow Diamond for Games 2 & 3 (if necessary). Those two home games will take place on Thursday, September 5 and Friday, September 6 with both beginning at 7:05 p.m.
