Lake Tomahawk Snowhawks featured on ‘Wisconsin Life’ on Oct. 24

October 22, 2019

The seventh season of “Wisconsin Life” on Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) offers plenty to get excited about. Host Angela Fitzgerald connects viewers with people whose passions, experiences and expertise celebrate the best of Wisconsin, introducing new stories from every corner of our state.

The Lake Tomahawk Snowhawks, a snowshoe baseball team, are featured in an all-new episode of “Wisconsin Life” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 on WPT.

Every Monday night during the summer, Lake Tomahawk hosts a snowshoe baseball game. It’s like softball, except the players wear snowshoes and the infield is covered in sawdust. It’s quirky and fun, but it’s also more than just a game. It’s a community event where locals and tourists come together to enjoy popcorn, homemade pie and northern Wisconsin’s twist on America’s pastime.

This season sees Fitzgerald crossing the state to visit places including the Shalom Wildlife Zoo in West Bend, the Marshfield Agricultural Research Station in Stratford and the Motorama Auto Museum in Aniwa. The rest of the Wisconsin Life team is just as well-traveled; as always, the program finds and introduces unique and inspiring Wisconsinites from all parts of the state and all walks of life.
