The Beloit Snappers are a Class A minor league baseball team, affiliated with the Milwaukee Brewers, that plays in the Midwest League.

Beloit joined the Midwest League as an expansion franchise in 1982. While they have always been a Brewers farm team, they adopted the Snappers nickname in 1995 after using the parent team's nickname for its first 13 seasons.

Their home park is Harry C. Pohlman Field at Tefler Park, built in 1981. The franchise attendance record of 101,127 was set in 1986.

The 2003 team included two sons of former major league players. Prince Fielder, who won the league's Most Valuable Player award, is the son of former American League home-run champion Cecil Fielder. Anthony Gwynn, son of future Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, also played for the Snappers in 2003.
