FOND DU LAC (WLUK) -- The Fond du Lac Dock Spiders invited fans to meet the team's manager, Zac Charbonneau and see the team's uniforms for their first season.

The Dock Spiders will play in the Northwoods collegiate summer baseball league.

"It takes a special player to play in the Northwoods League and those are the guys we brought in," said Charbonneau. "As of right now we've got 20 locked up and those come from 13 different states, so we're going to each corner looking for these guys, looking under every rock we can."

The dock Spiders' first-ever home game will be played at Marian University’s Herr-Baker Field on Thursday, June 1 at 6:35 p.m.

"There's been a real buzz, when merchandise went on sale in December, we saw a huge boom there, now ticket packages and group sales started up last month," said the Dock Spiders' General Manager Ryan Moede. "People are just really excited they have a team they can call their own in Fond du Lac which I think is a really neat thing for people that have been here."
