Dubois County Bombers – Where Every Night is Throwback Night!

A summer collegiate baseball team, the Dubois County Bombers play in the Ohio Valley League, a wooden bat league consisting of 10 teams playing in Western Kentucky, Southern Indiana, & Middle Tennessee. Our players come from near & far to play. The Bombers play high-quality contemporary baseball in a throwback setting.


When you enter the gates of historic League Stadium in Huntingburg, IN, home of the Bombers, you may think you’ve stepped back into the golden age of the game. League Stadium was home to the Rockford Peaches in the hit movie A League of Their Own. The vintage signage, scoreboard, and atmosphere remain.


The Bombers play in vintage-inspired uniforms - pants are knickered, stirrups are worn. The crack of a wood bat against a baseball resounds through the stadium. You may hear Who’s on First over the audio. We even have our own Peaches at the games keeping everything in the stadium rolling, while our coaches and players keep it exciting on the field.


Bombers games are great sport and excellent entertainment. Bring your family and enjoy America’s favorite pastime at its best.

The Bombers Are 2021 OVL Champions!

Following a 3-2 extra-inning road victory in game 1, the Bombers headed back to Huntingburg with a chance to win the Ohio Valley League title in front of the League Stadium faithful. The Bombers did just that, defeating the Full Count Rhythm 6-1 to become the 2021 OVL Champions!

Dubois County applied the pressure early on the Full Count Rhythm, scoring 2 in the first and three in the second. Dubois County led 5-0 after 2 innings, and 6-0 after 4. The team was playing well, and expectations were building.

Full Count made a push in the sixth inning, but starting pitcher Tyler Wheeler held them off. Wheeler pitched a complete game, allowed 9 hits, gave up 1 run, and struck out 4.

Leading 6-1 after 8, the Bombers were 3 outs away. Mason White caught a pop up for the first out, then the next batter hit a single. The very next at would be the last of the game. Tucker Schank caught a line drive to second base for the second out, then threw out the runner at first for the final out.

Here’s a dugout view of the final outs!

In the sixth, the Bombers took a 3-1 lead after Ben Wilcoxson’s RBI double. Tucker Schank followed up Wilcoxson’s double with a 2 RBI single to put the game out of reach.

The Flash loaded the bases in the seventh, but DC’s defense stifled the Flash and only allowed 1 run cross home plate. DC responded with 2 more runs in the bottom of the innings to take a 7-2 lead.

Henderson, trailing by 5 runs in the top of the ninth, plated a run to cut DC’s lead to 7-3. The game ended on a ground ball to shortstop Ben Wilcoxson, who stepped on second to record the final out. Check it out below!

Dubois County won the regular season series and swept the playoff series. During the playoff series, the Bombers outscored the Flash 20-4.

Next up for the Bombers are the Full Count Rhythm in the OVL Championship. Full Count finished the regular season with a league-best 32-12 record. DC went 1-3 in four regular season meetings against the Rhythm.

OVL Championship series schedule:
