Home of the 76ers

Welcome to the online home of the Quad City 76ers. Founded in 1976 by Jay Mercer. The 76ers are a semi pro/summer collegiate wood bat team made up of the best local & regional talent. Pictured below is the 2015 76ers. They finished the 2015 campaign with a fine (37-6) record and were Black Hawk Valley Conference champions, and finished third in the Iowa State Tourney. This conference title was the 76ers 25th in the last 26 years.

The 76ers took a pair today on a sweltering day at Augustana. They won the opener 6-2 over the solid Westmont Red Sox behind the arm of Matt Erickson. Jake Viaene had a double and two RBI’s, while Mitch Smith picked up his fourth save.  Game two saw the 76ers eek out a 3-2 win in 8 innings. Louis Hill went five strong, giving way to Shawn Simmons (5-1), who earned the win in relief. The 76ers, held hitless thru the first six innings, got on the board with a unearned run in the fifth. Bryce Luken broke up the no hitter with a lead off single in the top of the 7th, later to score on a RBI double by Jake Viaene to tie it up. In the bottom of the 8th, Jonah Saranglau drilled a single to win it for the hosts. The 76ers (31-8), are next in action on Tuesday at Augustana for the annual alumni game.  Aaron Wulfekuhle, a member of three Black Hawk Valley Conference titles, and a 2007 state title, will be inducted into the 76ers HOF. All former Sixers are urged to attend! First pitch 7:00.
