For many years, Midland has been known as “the softball capital of Michigan,” which refers to the city’s rich history of softball; especially men’s fast pitch softball. Club teams such as the Dow AC’s in the 50’s, Nick’s in the 60’s and more recently the Explorers and Emerson ACE's have and will continue to further the sport and its importance in Midland.
Perhaps the most recognizable of Midland’s facilities is Currie Stadium, located in Emerson Park, donated to the City by Gilbert A. Currie in the 40’s, Currie Stadium is the of the most visible community stadiums in the country. Host to national and international tournaments in its prosperous history, Currie Stadium continues to be the premiere facility for men’s fast pitch softball.
