YPSILANTI, MI (March 31, 2009) – The Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti will be hosting a Meet & Greet at Frenchie’s on Wednesday, April 8th from 5PM to 7PM. Frenchie’s is located in the heart of Depot Town in Ypsilanti, MI at 54 East Cross Street.

The Meet & Greet will take place beginning at 5PM, free of charge, and will be the kick-off event for a great season of baseball at Eastern Michigan University’s Oestrike Stadium. Fans will get a chance to talk baseball with players and get autographs. In addition, Tim Birtsas will be there to sign autographs and meet fans. Birtsas pitched for Michigan State University, was the New York Yankees #1 draft choice in 1982, and won a World Series with the 1990 Cincinnati Reds as a member of the “Nasty Boys” bullpen.

Team President Rob Hilliard will be available to answer questions about season tickets, group pricing, sponsorship opportunities, and becoming a host family for the 2009 season. In addition, come and discuss how to keep minor league baseball in Ypsilanti permanently!
