Fitzgerald Memorial Field is a 3.11-acre iconic youth baseball diamond, located on the western bank of the Grand River, in the heart of downtown. Dedicated in 1936, the lighted and irrigated field now hosts the Mustang League baseball games (ages 9 and 10) as well as the City's Little League Championship series.
Whether sitting in the bleachers to watch a baseball game or watching the action from up above on Bridge Street, Fitzgerald Memorial Field provides a superior backdrop to take in the beauty of the Grand River, the charm of downtown, and the wholesome fun of a Little League baseball game. And on Friday evenings in the month of July, families are invited to Movies in the Park, a free family-friendly movie shown on a portable screen in the middle of the field.
Fitzgerald Field is also the best spot to admire a striking mural by Michigan artist, Tony Hendrick. Created with local volunteers of all ages, "The Heart and Art of Grand Ledge" depicts life in Grand Ledge, both past, and present, and serves as a prominent reminder of the beauty that can come from a community working together.
