MARSH FIELD MEMORABILIA
Michigan High School Athletic Association historian Ron Pesch of Muskegon and Lakeshore Baseball Club officials are working together to gather images and stories of Marsh Field. The goals are to start capturing the memories and using these items in the future on a website, in print, or in the form of historical placards that could be displayed at the site.
Items being sought are: photographs, game programs, scorecards, home movies and baseballs.
Pesch said they want to capture images of the items, or will accept scans of the images. They are looking for written or verbal memories of the Lassies, Clippers, Reds, Detroit Tigers, football games, traveling road shots and other events that took place at Marsh Field. They include visits by the Negro League teams and Jessie Owens.
Anybody interested in forwarding their Marsh Field memories for the project should contact Pesch at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 231-759-7253.
