Poynette, Wisconsin is the home for the Poynette Home Talent Baseball Team. The Home Talent League of Wisconsin, founded in 1929, is one of the oldest and largest amateur baseball leagues in the country. Poynette has had a team in the League for almost every year of the League's existence. The 1963 Poynette squad claimed the League title, while more recently, the 2006 team won the Eastern Section crown and advanced to the Final Four.
The team plays their games at Pauquette Park on Main Street in Poynette.
Why the Indians? Well, after decades of Poynette High School being the Indians, the school district made a change in the fall of 2009. PHS is now known as the Pumas. Through the years, over 97% of the members of Poynette's Home Talent teams graduated from Poynette High School as Indians. Naming our team keeps the name 'Poynette Indians' alive. Another reason we chose the Indians is because we have all seen the 'Major League' series of movies about a hundred times. We probably even have guys that fit the roles of the movie...
