Shoemaker back for another season with the Loons
Seventy-two wins in 2011 was good enough to be brought back for another season. The Great Lakes Loons have retained John Shoemaker as their manager.
He has been a part of the Dodger organization for the last 35 seasons and has accumulated 1,228 wins. However 2012 will be only his second year in Midland.
The 72 wins in 2011 marked the third straight winning season for the Loons who open up their 2012 campaign in April with a game in Lansing.
