DETROIT — The United Auto Workers and Ford Motor Co. have given nearly $2 million to restore a Detroit neighborhood ballpark.
WXYZ-TV reports a cleaner, safer and completely refurbished Balduck Park was unveiled Saturday.
The event drew Detroit Tigers players Austin Jackson, Rajai Davis and Torii Hunter.
Improvements to the east-side park include the installation of bleachers, an updated scoreboard, landscaping and new restrooms.
Funding for the project is part of an ongoing relationship between UAW-Ford and Eagle Sports.
