New independent baseball league makes debut in Detroit area

DETROIT (AP) -

A new independent baseball league is making its debut in the Detroit area.
   A ribbon-cutting is planned Monday at the $15 million stadium in Utica ahead of an afternoon first pitch for the United Shore Professional Baseball League game. The Birmingham-Bloomfield Beavers faces the Utica Unicorns in the sold-out Memorial Day event.
   Skydivers are expected to deliver the game ball at Jimmy John's Field and the Utica High School Marching Band is performing.
   The league also includes a team called the Eastside Diamond Hoppers. The teams are sharing the stadium and aren't affiliated with a Major League team.
