The Sheboygan Indians were a minor-league baseball team based in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
They operated from 1940–1942 and 1946–1953. Joe Hauser was the manager of the team for its entire history. Hauser, incidentally, had been a major-league first baseman in the 1920s primarily with the Philadelphia Athletics. In 1924, he hit 27 home runs to finish second in the American League to Babe Ruth. Hauser began his career with the Sheboygan Indians as a player/manager and then a full-time manager.
The Indians played their games at Memorial Park, later to be renamed Legion Park, on Sheboygan's north side. The park was torn down in 1979. The park's large green grandstand could hold close to 3,000 fans, and several thousand more could be accommodated in bleachers the team used periodically during its existence. A park-record 9,000 fans watched an exhibition game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds in 1933. The Cubs won 21-11.
