Burlington, IA - As part of MWL Madness, Bees fans may now vote for the Burlington All-Time roster featuring three Hall-of-Fame players against that of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in the first week of a multi-week bracket challenge beginning Tuesday, April 7.

"As we all navigate new realities, our League has come together to give our fans the opportunity to celebrate Spring and the Baseball Seasons by looking back at the best of the best.

"As you examine the greatest players and teams in Midwest League history, it will give us all something exciting to do while we wait for the gates to open at our ballparks - and they will someday as soon as possible."

First round voting of MWL Madness will take place until Friday, April 10, with the Elite Eight running from April 14-17, the Final Four running April 21-24, and the Championship decided during April 28-May 1.

First-round matchups in the George Spelius Region, comprising Western Division teams, sees Beloit battle Clinton, Kane County challenge Cedar Rapids, Quad Cities play Peoria, and Wisconsin meet Burlington.
