8/3/14: Visiting Navin Field w/ Wahoo Base Ball Club of Royal Oak
We are excited this weekend to be playing our match of Historic base ball on the site of the demolished Tiger Stadium. Our great friends from Royal Oak will be meeting us on the field for what is sure to be an exciting match. The baseball history on the site of Michigan and Trumbull alone is enough to get us excited, but the opportunity to play where our heroes and legends play is an amazing opportunity. Come down to Michigan and Trumbull and watch these two clubs play base ball as it was meant to be played by a group of gentlemen. Tom Derry from the Navin Field Groups Crew that maintains this once bustling lot will be getting married prior to out game and we are excited to be part of it. The walls may have been torn down, but there is still a beautiful field to play on thanks to the NFGC. Bring your chairs out and enjoy base ball at the corner!
When: 2:00 pm
Where: Navin Field, Michigan and Trumbull, Detroit MI (Old Tiger Stadium)
7/27/14: Visiting Eclipse Base Ball Club of Northville
The men from Dexter ventured out to Northville for a match on what ended up being a very nice day for base ball after spots of rain in the morning. Dexter started the match strong scoring a run in each of the first two innings, but ran into troubles after that. Northville came out striking well and kept it going until they had a comfortable lead. By the end of the fourth inning, the Eclipse were up by 9 runs and they never looked back. The Union men were able to score a couple more tallies in the later inning, but Northville held them off to grab the victory on this exciting day of historic base ball. Thank you to our friends and hosts from the Eclipse, we look forward to seeing you in Dexter a month from now.
