Team History

The Wheaton Wildcats were formed in 2001 and played in the Western DuPage Colt and Palomino leagues for 4 years. We enjoyed early success in these leagues, winning the championship in 2001 and taking second in 2002. The Wildcats joined the MSL in 2005. We spent two years in the Central league, three years in the American league, and the past five years in the National league. We have advanced to postseason play in 8 of our 10 seasons in the league, winning the American league championship in 2009 and the National league championship in 2014. Heading into the 2015 season, the team has compiled an overall record of 213-112-5 (.655). In our 10 MSL seasons, our overall record stands at 162-89-5 (.645), our regular season record is 141-73-5 (.659), and our postseason record is 21-16 (.568). The Wheaton Wildcats are co-managed by Dan Husslein and Mike Russell.
