Carroll Park – Bay City, Michigan
Our home field lies in historic Carroll Park in Bay City, Michigan(Park and 5th St.). We feel it is important to play home games at a public park where residents can enjoy watching and participating in our games.
Located in the heart of the Center Avenue historic district, Carroll Park is an ideal location for Indpendents 1800s base ball. Carroll Park was dedicated in 1875, and was designed by the famous landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmstead, who also designed Central Park in New York City and the Rose Garden at the White House.
We play in the unmarked field at the northwest corner of Carroll Park. Look for our “Ball Game Today” sign while you are motoring down Center Avenue. Please bring your own seating (lawn chairs, etc.), because there is no field seating available.
