Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Old fashioned baseball

Today we spent the day at The Henry Ford Museum. We took in the traveling exhibit from the Pro Baseball Hall of Fame, and then went out to the Greenfield Village to watch some baseball, 1867 style! It looks like a lot of fun to play the way they did (but playing without mitts might make for some painful callouses).

There is a tournament all weekend with teams from around the midwest that play this old-style baseball.
