The 2023 inaugural season in Casper for the Spuds was an exciting one for sure. The Spuds got hot in the second half of the season and made a run for the Independent League Baseball championship, coming up short in game five of the championship series.

The Spuds lost the championship, 3 games to 2, to the Fremont (Nebraska) Moo.

Even though the scoreboard showed them on the losing side, really they were winners. Not a bad way to start their run in Casper.

Earlier this year is was announced the Spuds would be making the move from Idaho, to their new home in Casper. Casper welcomed the team with open arms and showed up to support the new team all season long.

This group of collegiate baseball players came to town, many from different parts of the country, and came together to be a championship caliber team.

The Spuds are part of the Independence League, which is made up of teams from North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Idaho and Wyoming. The league is a summer collegiate wooden bat league, that is much like a professional minor league team. The stadiums are family friendly, that have events for the kids between innings, affordable food and drinks, and offers Americas favorite pastime for a low cost.

We're sad to see the season come to an end, but extremely happy that the Spuds organization has already announced season tickets are available for the 2024 season. The team will be back playing at Mike Lansing Field in June of 2024 and you can get your season tickets for the 2023 prices.
