    Lots of people, unfortunately, didn’t make the cut. It sucks, but the number of applications we receive each time keeps growing. This time, we had about 150 applicants for the 38 available spots. It took us about 4 hours to get through all of them. The good news is, we’ve got a great mix of people and projects. I think people will be pleased.

    Dang it dang it dang!!! Another year wasted. The only reason I read this blog is to figure out what the SAF “judges” like. But, yet again, another year wasted. Yes friends, despite my pandering to Mark’s obsessions my submission for the SAF was rejected once again.

    Next year. Next year, I’ll get in for sure.

    We had quite a few nudes this time. It was weird. And unexpected. Every year the submissions are different.

    If he were making love to the unicorn, OEC, we probably would have accepted it.

    Minor League Baseball Comes to Ypsilanti & Washtenaw County

    Ypsilanti, MI- Friday marks Opening Day for the Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti, game time is 7:05pm. The Sliders will play the 2009 Frontier League season at Oestrike Stadium, on the campus of Eastern Michigan University. Forty-four, family friendly home games fill the 2009 schedule. The Sliders are the first and only minor league baseball team to play in Southeast Michigan.

    Affordability, a family friendly environment, and passion for the game of baseball are hallmarks of minor league baseball. Sliders tickets can be purchased at the gate before any home game, or by visiting their office located inside the Key Bank Building in historic downtown Ypsilanti. Seats are $8 for adults, and $7 for children, seniors and EMU students. A “flex pack” 12 game coupon book can be purchased for $72, and a season ticket is only $315.

    Excited with the prospect of building a permanent home for minor league baseball in Ypsilanti, a group of local investors have raised $25,000 towards purchasing the team and building a new stadium in Ypsilanti devoted to providing year round sports and entertainment. The ownership group is actively recruiting investors and fans of baseball in Washtenaw County. A new stadium will to act as an anchor for the continued development and revitalization in Eastern Washtenaw County. Interested investors should contact the Midwest Sliders main office for more details.

    America’s pastime nicely compliments the arts and entertainment offerings that are already hallmarks in Ypsilanti. With thriving summer festivals and car shows, along with the offerings of the Riverside Arts Center, What is That Art Gallery and the popular Shadow Art Fair, minor league baseball is another positive reason for residents of Washtenaw County to spend their entertainment dollars locally, rather than traveling far from home for fun family entertainment. Before the 2009 season, baseball fans in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti had to travel to Detroit, Lansing or Toledo to watch a game and have a hot dog. Now a short drive via Packard, Washtenaw or Ellsworth will connect you with Hewitt Road and residents are minutes away from a game.

    The Sliders look forward to seeing you at Oestrike Stadium tomorrow to cheer on the team as they look to beat the Windy City Thunderbolts on Opening Day. Don’t forget to bring your baseball mitt to catch a foul ball!
