The jumping, roots-rock recording is a baseball celebration, doing much to convey the fun that could still be found at Michigan and Trumbull- the locale of Tiger Stadium, Briggs Stadium and Navin Field- in Detroit, Michigan.

"Down At The Corner" is sure to spark memories and conversation or motivate fundraising whenever it's played. It's been described as “fun”, “danceable”and a “rollicking good song”:

How I’d love to go to The Corner
Where the street is paved in bricks
To take the day to watch ‘em play
With the gloves, the ball and the sticks

Baseball fever risin’
Like a fastball under the chin
And as the record shows, only Heaven knows
If the hometown team will win

But that’s

Baseball
Down at The Corner
Michigan and Trumbull
Down at The Corner-
Imagine the Fun

This diamond destination
Is known around the world
And at the Hall of Fame,
they all know the name
Where pennants have unfurled

They know the overhang, the rooftop shots
And the centerfield flagpole too-
If you’ve got a love for the Grand Ol’ Game
I’ve got a very special place for you

They wouldn’t need to light a fuse
To see fireworks tonight
Not with left-handed hitting lineups
And a breeze blowin’ out to right

I’ll hear the sounds of the game
comin’ from the field
Like the crunch and the pop and the crack
If you don’t come along I will fill you in-
That’s if and when I ever get back

Meet me down at The Corner
Honey, let’s make it a date
I promise you a ball will be had by all
Once the man unlocks the gate


The CD comes in a handsome card-stock jacket showing a bustling destination that many a baseball fan will recognize.

Lively, fun tune. Made me nostalgic for Tiger stadium.
Besides the catchy, toe tapping melody, the words hit home. It took me back childhood and seeing baseball games with my dad at Tiger stadium. Since Tiger was a small stadium you really felt like you were part of the action. It was a lot more fun than the large, impersonal new statium where everything is so far away you may as well be watching it on television. This song stuck with me and I often find myself humming it throughout the day. I just wish I see a game at Tiger stadium one last time.
