First College Game at Comerica Park to feature CMU/MSU Rivalry

100522_BaseballvEMU01.jpgThe Central Michigan Chippewas and the Michigan State Spartans are set to play the first college baseball game at the Detroit Tigers’s Comerica Park. The game marks their 100th yr of the in-state rivalry, as the two schools started playing each other on 1911. The Chippewas will be considered the home team, and lead the all-time series with the Spartans 62-46. CMU is the defending Mid-American Conference champions going 36-22 in 2010. State’s record was 34-19 last season. The game is set to take place on April 20, there is expected to be a press conference at Comerica this week releasing more details on the event.

This would be a fun game to go to, but I really have no desire to go to Detroit if I don’t have to. It would be nice if they played a double-header, so fans, students, and alumni making the trip would really get their money’s worth. However, the game being on a weeknight doesn’t give much of a chance for the fans to travel. I hope despite that fact this event goes over well, and it should be a great experience for both teams.

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
