Live and play (ball!) near Northwestern's Rocky Miller Park and Ryan Field

We spent the day at new Rocky Miller Park on the Northwestern University campus Sunday.  The northeast Evanston location has a unique and vibrant game day atmosphere near one of the best schools in the country. All photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty
Our Welles Park 9U Red All-Star team spent Sunday watching and playing baseball at the newly rebuilt Rocky Miller Park at Northwestern University.  The day was filled with inaugural ceremonies, sun, lots of baseball and college fun.  Our team joined the players on the field for Wayne Messmer's National Anthem and high-fives! We also held a one hour simulated game on the field. Thank you Northwestern Athletics!

Standing room only crowd for the special day.

Many players stuck around for autographs before our practice.

My son Ryne at the plate in Rocky Miller Park, Northwestern University.  I thought it was cool!
The immediate area surrounding Welsh-Ryan Arena, Ryan Field (football stadium) and Rocky Miller park offers a unique urban college town feel.  You have both college game day fun with city amenities.  The mostly older custom homes near the stadiums deliver charm. Walk over and catch Division I Big Ten sports and enjoy shopping, dining and everyday services conveniently nearby.

Diverse vintage homes surround the Northwestern stadium campus. All photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty
Single family homes within easy walking distance to NU sports have a median sales price of about $615,000 over the past 12 months. That will get you a frame or brick three bedroom vintage house.  Most homes under that price point will be a smaller three bedrooms house that needs updates.  Lots are typically 35' to 50' wide and 100' to 150' deep.

I love showing homes in this great Evanston area
