2005 Junior League Baseball World Series General Information
The Junior League Baseball World Series has been played in Heritage Park every year since 1981. Bleacher seating between home and first base and third base is approximately 2,000. The hillside terraces offer excellent viewing, and can accommodate up to 3,000 more fans.
Admission is $4 per car per day, or $7 per car for the entire week. Parking is included in these fees. The only ticket provided is sold for $7 per car for the entire week, which is available upon entry. If you plan to watch the games from the terraced hills, you may want to bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs.
Ample hotel space within one to three miles is available. Additional hotel space is available at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport located in neighboring Romulus, Mich., which is about six miles from the Series site. For more information, please contact the City of Taylor at www.cityoftaylor.com.
