The Billings Mustangs are exciting to watch! Dehler Park is a great place to see a game. The Mustangs take on the Missoula Paddleheads this Memorial Day Weekend and it promises to be great competition and lots of fun.
Some major league stars have begun their pro careers in Billings. These include George Brett, Reggie Sanders, Paul O’Neill, Trevor Hoffman, Keith Lockhart, Danny Tartabull, Ben Broussard, Scott Sullivan, Aaron Boone, Adam Dunn, Austin Kearns, and B. J. Ryan.
Dehler Park (and before at Cobb Field) is renowned in the Pioneer League for the “Beer Batter” tradition. Every game the Mustangs Beer Boosters designate one player as the “Beer Batter.” If that player gets a hit, attendees can buy four beers for $10. Many eager buyers stand at the stairs anticipating a hit and the oncoming rush of people.
The Billings Mustangs changed their logo for the 2006 season. The 2007 season was their last at Cobb Field and the Mustangs begin the 2008 season at Dehler Park. On September 11, 2014, the Mustangs defeated the Orem Owlz for their first Pioneer League Championship since the 2003 season. After the 2014 season, the team introduced its new ownership group, Main Street Baseball.
In conjunction with a contraction of Minor League Baseball in 2021, the Pioneer League was converted to an independent baseball league and granted status as an MLB Partner League, with Billings continuing as members.
