Hamtramck Stadium

Historic Hamtramck Stadium is one of only five Negro League home ballparks still in existence. The grandstand and field are in Veterans Memorial Park on the south side of Hamtramck. The Stadium was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012. In 2014, a State of Michigan Historic Marker was dedicated at the site. On January 12, 2017, Hamtramck Stadium was the recipient of a National Park Service African American Civil Rights Grant for pre-development planning.
FHHS launched its first online fundraiser on March 4, 2019, via the Patronicity.com platform. Video and details below.

Thanks 50,000 Times

With the support of more than 300 donors, the Patronicity crowdfunding campaign launched by the Friends of Historic Hamtramck Stadium and the Piast Institute has exceeded its $50,000 goal!

We are very grateful for the outpouring of support and will soon be getting to work on restoring the historic field in conjunction with the Hamtramck Stadium Grounds Crew.

More to come soon.
