GRAND RAPIDS — Dick Pindar hunkered down, patted the shiny bleachers at Eagle Stadium and shook his head.

No, this was not storied Houseman Field; this was not the site of track and field in the City League since 1935.

But with the nearly century-old league disbanding a year ago, having the seven former member schools gathered for a reunion meet anywhere was just fine.

“I’m an old goat and used to Houseman,” said Pindar, 78, who was a half-miler and miler at Union. “I have watched my kids and grandkids run in the City League, too. It’s good these schools could get together again.”
