Faculty members, students, and alumni of UM-Flint join community members over the summer to make up the Lumber City Baseball Club–Flint’s vintage baseball team. Their goal is to “entertain audiences with authentic competition in a way that provides a meaningful connection with the sport, recreation, and history.” It’s also a lot of fun!
