Beloit Snappers

 The Beloit Snappers are a Class A minor league baseball team, affiliated with the Oakland Athletics, that plays in the Midwest League and is based in Beloit, Wisconsin.

Beloit joined the Midwest League as an expansion franchise in 1982. The club was a Milwaukee Brewers farm team from its inception through 2004. Beloit switched to the Twins' farm system for the 2005 season. The organization adopted the Snappers nickname in 1995 after using its parent team's nickname for its first 13 seasons. The name derives from the snapping turtle, because Beloit was formerly known as Turtle Village and there is still a Turtle Creek and a town of Turtle. All of these are named for a turtle-shaped Indian mound on the campus of Beloit College.

Their home park is Harry C. Pohlman Field at Telfer Park, built in time for the 1982 season. The franchise attendance record of 10,127 was set in 1986.

The 2003 team included two sons of former major league players. Prince Fielder, the son of former American League home run champion Cecil Fielder and Tony Gwynn, Jr., son of Tony Gwynn. Future major leaguer Danny Valencia played for the 2007 team.
