TROY, Mich. – Fans are excited about returning to Comerica Park for Tuesday’s game against the Seattle Mariners, but there was another game Tuesday a little further north.
The Detroit MSBL has been around since 1988. Their games might be slower and with fewer home runs, but it is still a game of passion.
The Detroit MSBL has 52 teams and six different age divisions. Tuesday was the first day for their newest age group -- 70 and up. It’s the fourth league in the country to have one.
John Bosch, 82, played baseball when he was in high school. When he came to watch a friend’s game when he was 71, he knew he could still play.
Players said they love baseball, but they love the friendships more.
