Tiger Stadium Documentary "Stealing Home"

"Stealing Home", winner of the recent Freep Film Festival audience award, chronicles the history of Tiger Stadium and the recent action of the Navin Field Grounds Crew to resurrect and maintain the remaining footprint of this historic location. This film presents the day-to-day activities of the Grounds Crew alongside historic imagery of the field from the past 100 years. Join us on Wednesday, June 18, 7:00-8:45 PM, as we watch this fantastic piece of Detroit Tiger history and then join director Jason Roche, Professor of Communication Studies at University of Detroit-Mercy, for an informative Q&A. This presentation is open to patrons of all ages and is a must-see for baseball fans and history buffs alike. This is also a CYS Game On: On the Scene approved program.

A great documentary. I was glad that I was able to attend. It brought back a lot of memories and I did learn some new facts, Having the Q&A after was an opportunity to meet some great people involved in the project.
