Hello Neighbors,


This is a final reminder for the Meet & Greet with the Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti tonight at Frenchie’s in Depot Town in Ypsilanti from 5PM to 7PM. There will be complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

Minor league baseball is coming to Ypsilanti and Oestrike Stadium! This Meet & Greet will give the community several reasons to celebrate. First of all, it’s very exciting to have professional baseball in our own back yard. Secondly, it’s another chance to enjoy another successful collaboration between Eastern Michigan University and the community. Finally, it’s a chance for the community to come out and show its support for baseball and talk about how we can get our own team to play in Ypsilanti next year.

Play ball!
