Grangers and the Mackinac Never Sweats

Newspaper clip from August 27, 1874Welcome to the website of the Rochester    Grangers Base Ball Club! The current version of the Rochester Grangers was formed in 1999, but the origins of base ball in Rochester, Michigan go back much farther!

Organized sports started in Rochester in the late 1860s. There was a town base ball club as early as 1873, and by 1875 there was a merchant’s league - in that year the Grangers beat the Mechanics 25-15. Rochester supported a base ball club that played surrounding towns well into the 1930s. Another local club that formed around that time was the Independents.
 

Our next home match is August 24th against the Greenfield Village Lah-De-Dahs.

 

Don't forget to come out to our last match of the season on August 30th. That day, the Rochester Grangers will be facing off against the Wyandotte Stars at Hamtramck Stadium! Also known as Roesink Stadium, Hamtramck Stadium is one of only a few Negro League stadiums still in existence. The Stadium was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012, and on August 14, 2014, a State of Michigan Historic Marker was dedicated at the site.
