A newly remodeled ballpark that's named in honor of the late William Clay Ford Sr. is part of a broader effort to boost recreation options for youth in Detroit.

UAW-Ford donated $1.8 million to refurbish the baseball field for residents of the city's Midtown, Woodbridge and other area neighborhoods. Updated bleachers, pitching and batting cages, a digitized scoreboard, scenic landscaping and restrooms are among upgrades.
