LIVING IN MIDLAND
Mid-Michigan's only minor league baseball team, the Great Lakes Loons, landed in the community in April 2007. A single-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Loons play at the 5,500-seat Dow Diamond stadium near downtown Midland, a great place for games during the warmer months and special events all year.
The Midland Community Tennis Center is recognized as one of the top 25 tennis facilities in the country and is home to the annual Dow Corning Women’s Tennis Tournament, an important U.S. Open qualifying tournament that draws top professionals from around the world. In September 2009, the U.S. Tennis Association named Midland the #1 Tennis Town in the nation during the 2009 U.S. Open in New York.
Plymouth Pool is open for the public to enjoy for recreational swimming and classes, but Midland also has options for more serious swimmers. The Midland Dolphins and Barracuda club swim teams provide opportunity for instruction and competition at all ages in the community.
Midland Public Schools support athletics programs at the middle school and high school levels. For more information on school sports contact the H. H. Dow or Midland High athletic department.
