GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Nestled in the valley of Grand Rapids’ West Side there is a gem that sparkles on crisp fall mornings. The sun throws long shadows from the trees and fences on the dirt, the grounds crew mows away the leaves covering the green, and the mist rises off the grass telling the legend of Sullivan Field.
“Al Kaline played on this field,” Andy DeVries said as he pointed out to each spot on the field. “Willie Horton played right there, and Mickey Stanley played right there. Charlie Maxwell played right.”
