CACD Softball, Summer 2017

Every Other Sunday, all summer, starting June 11th

We have found a new field, right behind Big Boy’s to play at: Bedford Woods Park. No more fooling around, getting displaced from first one field then another. Here is a map. From the intersection of 12 Mile Rd. & Southfield Rd., go one block to the East, turn left (north) on Lathrup Blvd., drive two blocks and turn into the park. Don’t try any other road along Southfield to get in, you won’t make it. The only problem is they don't have a bathroom, so be sure to go beforehand.

All are welcome! Our group is co-ed and non-competitive. The games are “pickup,” meaning open to whoever drops by, with the rosters and captains changing every week depending on who shows and players’ abilities. Practice and play are also “drop-in,” meaning you can arrive and depart when you want to. We begin each week with “batting practice” at 4:00 PM. Game time is set for 5:00 PM. We play until 6:30 - 7:00 PM depending on interest and then head to a restaurant to celebrate our victories or complain about our injuries. You can continue to watch SPARKS for the monthly schedule or contact us to get on a dedicated e-mail list. Contact Mark LaPointe, (810) 499-4831, or

Hope to see you on the field!
