Dear friend and supporter,
The Friends of Historic Hamtramck Stadium cordially invite you to attend the unveiling of a new State of Michigan historic marker commemorating Hamtramck Stadium on Thursday, August 14, at 3:30 p.m.
The historic marker dedication will take place in Veterans Memorial Park near the monument to Col. Hamtramck on Jos. Campau Street, one block south of Goodson.
Built in 1930, Hamtramck Stadium is a former home of the Negro League Detroit Stars and Detroit Wolves as well as of semi-pro teams like the Detroit Cubs (pictured above). Hamtramck Stadium is one of only a handful of Negro League ballparks still in existence.
More information about Hamtramck Stadium and the dedication ceremony can be found at www.HamtramckStadium.org.
R.S.V.P. to HamtramckStadium@GMail.com or to 313.614.9006.
Thanks again for your support!
Gary Gillette, President
