Enjoy America’s Past Time with this Collegiate “Wooden Bat” League Baseball
The Bombers play high-quality contemporary baseball in a throwback setting. Their home field, “Huntingburg League Stadium,” was the field for the Rockford Peaches in the hit motion picture “A League of Their Own,” starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, and Madonna. Playing homage to the movie, The Bombers play in vintage-inspired uniforms – pants are knickered, stirrups are worn. The crack of a wood bat against a baseball resounds through the stadium. We even have our own Peaches (in the uniforms depicted in the movie) at the games keeping everything in the stadium rolling, while our coaches and players keep it exciting on the field.

The historic Mitchell Opera House was built in 1906 and was originally County Hall when it first opened. In 1908 the building became an Opera House and was used for live Vaudeville acts, first run movies, class plays, and more. In 1930, the entertainment venue stopped hosting shows and became a storage facility for fire trucks and equipment. In the 1950’s, part of the building was used as a “Teen Canteen” for youth gatherings, and thereafter became Mitchell City Hall from the 1960’s until 1981. At that point, the Hartzell family took the initiative to re-open the Opera House and had occasional shows from 1985 to 2012. In the fall of 2014, the City of Mitchell deeded the property to Hoosier Uplands for renovations to the historic Mitchell Opera House in order to re-open and provide quality entertainment to the community! The venue re-opened in July of 2015.
The Mitchell Opera House hosts shows nearly every weekend with a variety of music and entertainment including: country music, bluegrass music, rock music, tribute bands, theatrical performances, musicals, and movies.
