Press Release #33/April 19, 2021

Baseball players from two Dearborn public high schools will get to face off under the bright lights of a minor league stadium on April 29.

Dearborn High School will take on Edsel Ford High School when the varsity teams play at Fifth Third Field in Toledo, Ohio.  The field is the home of the Toledo Mud Hens, which start their season the following week.  The high school game will start at 7 p.m. on April 29, and admission is free.

Dearborn High has played at the stadium before, facing off with Lincoln Park High School during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

“It’s a really cool experience for our players, coaches and parents,” said Jeff Conway, Dearborn High School athletic director.  “The folks at Fifth Third make it memorable by putting the players’ names on the scoreboard, playing walk up music and stuff like that. It will only be made better by having two Dearborn schools playing each other and throwing a crosstown rivalry into the mix.”

“Hopefully, we can get a nice little City of Dearborn crowd down there to watch the game,” Conway added.
