LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

It's not even spring training yet, but some in our area are talking baseball.

The Loggers hosted their annual winter banquet at the Stony Creek Inn Thursday night. And they had a lot to talk about.

There's the upgrades to the park, sharing Copeland Field with the UW-La Crosse baseball team, and some ideas yet to come. "We're in the dead of winter here and I don't think baseball's probably everybody's first thing on their mind when they step outside and it's 20 below, but tonight it will be. We usually fill up a room like we will tonight to talk baseball for a couple of hours in January, sometimes we say only in La Crosse, because that's the kind of baseball market we live in; it's pretty special," said Logger's G.M. Chris Goodell.

Other things to look forward to are a La Crosse Area Baseball Walk of Fame, and a run in August starting and ending at the ballpark.
