Bushwood Ballpark - Wiffle® Ball Field of the Month
Our Wiffle® ball field of the month for July goes to Bushwood Ballpark, located in Niles, Michigan. Construction started in early 2015 and opening day was May 22nd 2016. Seating capacity is around 200 ( if they bring chairs) They have a manual scoreboard complete with a mounted wiffle® ball and two official yellow bats. There is a pond in foul ground next to left field. A shed that is used as a concession stand, they use a popcorn machine, and do the national anthem before each game/ tournament.
Field Dimensions: Bases 37.5', Mound 32', Left Field 83', Left Center Field 85', Center Field 91', Right Center Field 87', Right Field 84'
They have had people from 6 states play on the field so far, ranging in age from 10 to 73. Still planned are bleachers, a ticket booth with a turnstyle, Holly hedges that grow through the fence to form an ivy like appearance year round ( just planted).
Bushwood comes from the name of the country club in the movie Caddyshack. A defining comedy for people 40 and over. They do tournaments, league play and charity events as well as birthdays. They hope to have Bill Murray and Cindy Morgan from Caddyshack out some year.
