Where they played last season

This summary is based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

Beloit's team is pretty much last year's Helena team, fortified slightly with players from Beloit and the AZL Brewers.

Team        League          W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                  (Teams)
High Desert California (A+) 42/98 10(10)       0       0
Beloit      Midwest (A)     75/61  2(14)       3       1
Helena      Pioneer (R+)    48/28  2(8)        8       9
Brewers     Arizona (R)     15/34  9(9)        3       2

There was only slight movement within this system last year; one player is counted twice in this table, another three times. One player came to the Brewers from another system, and one was hired from an independent league team.
