Ypsi: Baseball

PPNA Happenings, a blog for Ypsilanti’s Prospect Park Neighborhood, posts a press release announcing a meet-and-greet for the baseball team Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti, to kick off their season. The April 8 event runs from 5-7 p.m. at Frenchie’s in Depot Town. “Fans will get a chance to talk baseball with players and get autographs. In addition, Tim Birtsas will be there to sign autographs and meet fans. Birtsas pitched for Michigan State University, was the New York Yankees #1 draft choice in 1982, and won a World Series with the 1990 Cincinnati Reds as a member of the ‘Nasty Boys’ bullpen.” [Source]
