MITCHELL, S.D. - The Northwoods League is out in Mitchell, at least for now.

The city of Mitchell on Friday, Jan. 12, said the Northwoods League will not be fielding a team in Mitchell this year.

"Expansion is possible for 2019 but expansion will not be determined until a later date," according to a statement from Nathan Powell, Mitchell Parks and Recreation director.

A three-year option agreement between the Mitchell Parks and Recreation Department and the Northwoods League was finalized on May 18, 2017. The Northwoods League has the option to field a baseball team to play up to 40 games per year on Drake Field at the Cadwell Park Sports Complex for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 seasons.
