Baseball returned to Wild Things Park in July. Even though the regularly scheduled Frontier League schedule was canceled, a four-team, in-house league hit the turf to bring some sense of normalcy to the summer.

The Washington Wild Things, Steel City Slammin' Sammies, Baseball Brilliance and the Road Warrior Black Sox played every Thursday through Sunday with two games per day. Players on all four teams consisted of former collegiate standouts from around the country. Some players have signed professional contracts and others are still fighting for their big break. A total of 11 former WPIAL stars played in the unique league. Former Major Leaguer Brandon Phillips joined the Baseball Brilliance team for one game and hit a home run over the left field fence. His brother, P.J., was the Baseball Brilliance head coach.
