Leave of Absence

The Oshkosh Giants and West Bend 7 Up will continue their leave of absences from WSL play. The Giants still continue to operate with a Board of Directors and are hoping to rejoin in 2020.

West Bend remains a member of the Land O’ Lakes league and Southeastern Wisconsin Baseball League. Uncertainty with upcoming stadium renovations was one of the factors in determining to remain on the leave. West Bend will re-evaluate their situation after 2020 with the hope of rejoining the WSL fulltime in 2021.
