Black Earth Home Talent Baseball

The Black Earth Bombers is an amateur baseball organization who participates in the Home Talent League in south central Wisconsin. The Bombers were one of the six original teams when the league formed in 1929. The other teams were Arena, Bellville, Cottage Grove, Deforest and Middleton. Black Earth went 7-3 in the inaugural season under manager Howard Sebert. Middleton, who also still has a team in the league, won the title that year, and their current nickname, the 29ers, honors their 1929 championship.
