Welcome Erie SeaWolves

The Ypsilanti Liberators have generated a lot of positive buzz in the community to date. One might even go as far to say that people are agog with excitement. Personally, I can’t go that far yet.

Eager? Sure. Agog? Not quite.

Even though I am only handling the rumormongering end of the deal, people are literally stopping me on the street pitching their ideas for the new stadium. Some want solar panels on the roof. Others want the roof to be covered in sedum. One person even asked me to consider the idea of the stadium being run by a state-of-the-art clean coal power plant.

While all of this is well and good, it should be noted that only the clean coal guy bought me dinner. So technically, he’s winning.

During the Fourth of July holiday, one person approached me and told me there is another investment group looking at minor league baseball in southeast Michigan. Reportedly, this other group is looking at three different sites for a stadium:

  • Willow Run and I-94
  • Geddes Road and US-23
  • Huron Street in Ypsilanti Township

The Ypsilanti Township property is interesting. It’s close to a hotel. It has easy on / off access to a major highway. It’s a little more than eight acres, but it’s adjacent to a parcel of nearly two acres owned by the same person.

Is any of this a real possibility—especially for the fabled Water Street property (located in downtown Ypsilanti for your convenience)?

I dunno. Maybe. Why not?

While the notion of minor league baseball has a lot of people excited, hopefully this exercise is teaching us about possibilities.
