Freedom Pro Baseball League Games


Did you know Peoria has its own professional baseball team?

The Peoria Explorers are one of four teams in the Freedom Pro Baseball League, which continues play through the end of August.

The Explorers feature some familiar faces in the dugout and in the field. Former USC standout Brett Jenkins is the Explorers’ manager and his brother, former Milwaukee Brewers star Geoff Jenkins, is the assistant coach.
