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.
** Opening day at Van Hoosen Farm is Saturday June 6th vs Flint Lumber City!
After the game, you can join both clubs for a hot dog and soda!
Catch us on Saturday June 13th at the Troy Community Center as we help the city of Troy celebrate
their 60th birthday!
