Owner Bio

After making millions peddling second-hand western wear in the Pacific Northwest, eccentric Corn Shuckers owner Tom Dhamers realized a life-long dream when he brought professional baseball to his birthplace of Annawan, Illinois in 2001. Spitting in the face of reason and logic, Dhamers remains firm in his belief that a town of just under 3,000 can support a major league FOBL franchise while maintaining financial viability. His optimism is bouyed by the fact that his is the only FOBL team in a 200-mile radius and the fact that their residence in the Nor'Easter Division ensures a slate of mediocre competition year in and year out.

When not operating his fresh-picked corn stand on Route 78, Dhamers can often be found roaming the stands at Howes Park, shaking hands with the fans and desperately seeking out participants for the 5th-inning Speed-Shucking contest.

Franchise Lineage:
2001 to Present: Annawan Corn Shuckers — Owner: Tom Dhamers (aka "Shucker")
2001: Chesapeake Cheapshots — Owner: Michael Sanderson (aka "Quiksand")
