Birch Creek Baseball Field
The Birch Creek Baseball Field that was started by local young men and women the summer of 1974. Vince and Jim Jasenovsky approached the township board requesting field improvements to develop the baseball field. After board approval, it was used for several years, until league baseball teams required a dirt infield. Between 2010 and 2014 - the baseball field received minimal maintenance work, received a grant for a new the backstop and then volunteers helped convert the grassy infield to a dirt infield, adding bases and a few other items designed to meet the needs for little league and the women's league. The Menominee County Women's Softball League filled the park once again in October 2015. Late in 2018 - the Menominee Township Board & Planning Commission received approval by the state for a grant by MDNR to build a pavilion. The project was completed by pride Builders 2020.
The park has a new 60 X 200 foot parking area in the SW corner of the park which was built in 2018 by M&M Trucking. Please use this area to park and avoid driving on the grassy areas.
The pavilion is handicap accessible along with designated handicap parking next to it.
If interested in renting the pavilion, the charge will be $75.00.

The dirt infield was the major improvement that allowed the women's league to have tournaments . The baselines are 230+ feet from home to fence which was provided for the women's league. The field will cannot be upgraded to meet the 260 foot men's needs.
