DETROIT (AP) A Detroit corner that has been a stage for many of baseball's greatest players now will host youth games, events and other programs for young people.
A ribbon-cutting is scheduled at 10 a.m. Saturday at The Corner Ballpark on the site of the former Tiger Stadium. A high school doubleheader will be played in the afternoon.
The facility also is headquarters for the nonprofit Detroit Police Athletic League which serves more than 14,000 girls and boys. The 8,500-square-foot building is adjacent to the Willie Horton Field of Dreams, named after the former hometown fan favorite who helped the Tigers win the 1968 World Series.
