Bay City hosts Greenfield Village • May 19, 2012 • Carroll Park, Bay City, MI
Bay City 19, Greenfield Village 6
The Independents would open their season for 2012 with the last opponent they faced in 2011, the Greenfield Village La-de-dahs. The Dah's had defeated the Bay Citys in extra-innings to take the State Championship 15-14 in late September, and the Independents hoped that scheduling the State Champions early would allow them an opportunity to take the Championship from them in 2012. Alas, the Independents' planning proved futile, as the week previous to their scheduled match the Greenfield Village boys lost the Championship Cup to the Regular Base Ball Club of Mount Clemens, so the days match would go off without the potential for a Championship for the Bay Citys. The aforementioned wrinkle would however be the only flaw in the Bay Citys plan, as they took to the field against the Villagers and played excellently throughout.
