Base Ball Returns To "The Corner"

August 23, 2013

"When the opposing team makes a great play, you root 'em on."

Joe Taylor, co-captain of the Wyandotte Stars Vintage Base Ball team.

Base Ball returns to the corner of Michigan and Trumbull this weekend. That’s TWO words. So what’s the difference? Plenty, if you’re talking about the sport we know today, or the original game that became America’s pastime. The Vintage Base Ball state championship will be decided on the grounds of the old Tiger Stadium at 11 a.m. Saturday between the Wyandotte Stars and the Saginaw Old Golds. Joe Taylor is a co-captain of the Stars. He tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller they play by 1867 rules. Click on the audio link above to hear the conversation.
