    This style of league has crashed and burned elsewhere in the country.

    How about Westland, my home town?

    Hopefully it will morph into if you will into a 4 team league with another park in sw Wayne county

  4. This ballpark looks nice and it is great that it has broken ground and is being built and looks totally legit, but what about the plan to have a three team league be the main tenant? Seems like a weird plan for a brand new, $12 million project.
