Where they played last season

This is a brief portrait of how the team was put together. These summaries are based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

This year's Snappers are largely built around last year's Beloit and Helena teams, with a contribution from Ogden. The Helena team was quite good.

Team     League          W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                               (Teams)
Stockton California (A+) 57/83   9(10)      0       0
Beloit   Midwest (A)     59/80  14(14)      5       5
Helena   Pioneer (R+)    47/28   2(8)       6       6
Ogden    Pioneer (R+)    26/50   8(8)       4       3

There was very little player movement in the Brewers organization last summer, so most of the new Snappers spent last summer with one team. Two members of the team were with other organizations in 1999; one played briefly in Triple-A ball.
