For more than 100 years, the home of baseball in Detroit stood at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull. Generations of fans watched the stars play at Bennett Park, Navin Field, Briggs Stadium, and Tiger Stadium. When the City of Detroit demolished the stadium in 2009, blight took over. Stealing Home, a documentary film by director Jason Roche, tells the heartwarming story of the Navin Field Grounds Crew, a group of devoted fans who preserve their city's history by maintaining the baseball diamond at the abandoned site of the old Tiger Stadium. But city officials don't view their civic devotion as an act of service; they see it as trespassing.
Will the grounds crew save this historic baseball site? Or will they be thrown out stealing home?
