The Eagle Scouts' projects were repairs at the Amerman Elementary baseball diamond and collecting toiletries for Northville Civic Concern.
Two Eagle Scouts achieved their new rank by completing community projects around Northville. The Northville schools board of education honored the two new Eagle Scouts at a meeting earlier this month. Thomas Mario Franchi achieved the rank of Eagle Scout by completing a project on the Amerman Elementary School baseball diamond. "It was in a really bad state of disrepair," said Ken Roth, board president. His project included: Franchi said the new benches can be removed in the winter time to prevent them from getting ruined from snow and rain. He said he asked some of the parents who were there for a game and was told they were grateful for the improvement. Michael Alexander Rootare collected toiletries for Northville Civic Concern to …

The Brighton Bulldogs beat the Northville Mustangs 3-1 to snag their seat in the Michigan High School Athletic Association regional championship game.
Michigan's summer sun wasn’t the only thing heating up the atmosphere at the baseball state semifinals Saturday. The underdog Brighton Bulldogs (25-5) had high spirits and competitive juices flowing, which kept them alive after a rocky start and led them to a 3-1 regional semifinal victory against Northville. Catcher Blake Pokorski even almost fainted due to the heat and heavy gear. Brighton seniors had to miss their commencement for the win, but they had a special ceremony on Thursday. Brighton pitcher Ryan McClelland surrendered four hits and one run, with two hits himself. The Northville Mustangs (29-3) pitcher Matt Stoikov gave up six hits, and three runs. Two of which were brought to you by a home run by Mitchell Kahl.

The Detroit Tigers win 5-2 against the Texas Rangers Tuesday night in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.
Just when it seemed like it might be the end of the road for the Detroit Tigers after two consecutive losses to the Texas Rangers on the road, the Tigers – who faced elimination from the American League Championship Series (ALCS) if they lost one more game – ensured they'd stay in the playoffs for at least one more day with a 5-2 win against the Rangers. And leading the charge at Comerica Park was The Queen of Soul herself, Aretha Franklin. The Grammy-winning Detroit icon belted out a heartfelt rendition of Star Spangled Banner while dozens of volunteers unfurled a massive American flag on the field. The teams will play again today at Comerica Park in Game 4 of the ALCS, which starts at 4:19 p.m. Were you at the game? Add your photos to …

As postseason gets under way for Detroit team, memories take center stage.
It’s just plain different. Period. Baseball is sacred to Americans. It’s our game, it’s marked the passage of time for more than a century, and it, unlike any other game, unifies us all. Our grandfathers talked of the game’s greats of their era, as did our fathers to us, as we do to our kids, and as they will to theirs—each generation comparing statistics, impact and status of their favorite players and teams. DiMaggio and Williams, Mantle and Mays, Ryan and Clemens, Pujols and Jeter — each name highlighting endless conversations between generations of baseball fans. Who is better? Where do they fit in list of all-time greats? What if Williams played today, or Pujols played then? Baseball is a common thread woven through the tapestry of …

This Father's Day, I'll think of my dad as brightly as the day he left for his 10-year road trip with the angels.
My dad has pitched for the angels for 10 years. The games aren’t televised in Detroit and they can’t be found on MLB.com. Team jerseys are currently unavailable, we’re not in the same time zone and I’ve yet to see his team featured on SportsCenter. And although we can’t get mobile updates on our phones, I can imagine he’s pitching out of his mind. He’s dazzling batters one after the next with his floating knuckleballs and intermittent fastballs, “just to keep them on their toes,” he’d say. And as they walked back to the dugout scratching their heads he would watch them, daring them to look back so they could see him smile. He’s on a long road trip now and I miss him. And no, he’s not in Anaheim. My dad plays for the …
