On my last trip back to Detroit, James, Jeff, and Taylor of the Detroit Party Marching Band gave me a fantastic tour of the city. It’s the only reason I got a chance to see half the city, including the Power House Project, Hamtramck Disneyland, the Grace Lee Boggs house, and the RIC. This, though, was my favorite stop. Roesink Stadium played home to the Detroit Stars in what’s now Veterans Park. All that remains today is the field itself and the home plate grandstand, but god is it beautiful. I’d love nothing more than for the city to realize its own wealth of baseball history, and restore/preserve the field. The structure around Tiger Stadium may be lost, but the city’s been given a second chance with Roesink.
