Is baseball coming back to Michigan and Trumbull?

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

Once again there's talk of bringing baseball back to the corner of Michigan and Trumbull.

Major League baseball is looking to put a youth facility in the city of Detroit with one possible location being Tiger Stadium.

The academy would provide free year-round baseball and softball instruction for children in the city.

There are three other academies located in California, Florida, and Texas.

The plan, however, faces some major financial hurdles because Detroit Economic Growth Corporation president, George Jackson, says Major League Baseball isn't putting up enough money to make it happen.
