The Tattler was talking with some friends over at the EMU sports office and they confirmed, minor league baseball is coming to Ypsilanti. The Midwest Sliders will play at Oestrike field on EMU’s campus starting in 2009. The team will relocate to Waterford in 2010 and rename themselves the Oakland County Cruisers.

This isn’t baseball at Water Street, but maybe it can demonstrate that minor league baseball can work in Ypsilanti too.

The Tattler tried to order season tickets, but the website wasn’t working. Maybe they will get it fixed next week.
