Hamtramck Stadium

Hamtramck Stadium was built in 1929 by John Roesink, owner of the Detroit Stars - a team in the Negro Baseball League. The stadium was later incorporated into a larger park for the City of Hamtramck, and was used for various purposes over the decades.

The grandstand fell out of use in the 1990's and was fenced off due to safety concerns. Today, Hamtramck Stadium is one of the last remaining Negro Baseball League fields left in the country. The field was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012, and a group is currently raising funds to renovate it.
