United Methodist Men's Group of Bad Axe, Michigan

August 24, 2008, The Menís Group organized a trip to see the
Great Lakes Loons Baseball Team in Midland at the Dow Diamond.

It is a beautiful facility, parking was easy and there wasnít a bad seat in the park.
Access is very easy for people with limited walking or in wheelchairs.

The Loons lost to the South Bend Silver Hawks.
We had around 40 people from our Church attend during
the Faith & Family Day and it was a Wonderful Event!

The Dow Diamond Midland Loons Scoreboard displays player stats, instant replays and
many Church names during the Faith and Family Day (including ours).

Here is a a view of the stadium
Play Ball!

Here is a closeup of the Scoreboard

There was a Controversial Call.
The Loons hit a Home Run but the
Silver Hawks Coach thought it was a double.
He got into a Heated Arguement with an Ump.

It was a Long Heated Arguement and
the Ump had enough and walked away from him.
It was ruled a Home Run and
The Coach got Ejected!
