The Capital City Stealth will be hosting a "Semi-Pro Football Reunion Day" at their May 14th preseason home opener to kick off their 2011 season.

The Stealth will be honoring those who started the tradition of excellent football teams here in mid-Michigan. They are looking for any coaches, players or cheerleaders who were a part of the following teams that paved the way in the mid-Michigan area from the mid 70's through early 2000's: The Lansing All-Stars, The Lansing Crusaders, The Bath Cardinals, The Jackson Bombers, and those who played in Fraternal Order of Police "Pigs & Freaks" games in the 70’s.

If you or someone you know was a coach, player or cheerleader for one of these teams, then we want to hear from you so we can honor them on May 14th.

When: May 14 - 4:00 pm - Capital City Stealth Game against the Waterford Warthogs
Where: Chippewa Middle School on Kinewa Drive in Okemos, MI
Contact: Frank Cugini - or 586-863-8338
Reserve your spot now for our Semi-Pro Football Reunion game festivities.

    I played in the first few Pigs and Freaks Games. The game was started by a few of us who worked at Cave of the Candles Restaurant in East Lansing and some of our friends and customers.We played on weekends with our friend Lou Potter who was on the East Lansing Police force and eventually some of his friends from the police Dept. started playing each week. It became a fun contest between us and we came up with the idea of a Pigs and Freaks game.Our first game was at the ELHS football field in 1970. It got moved to Spartan Stadium in a few years and became a much bigger and more "professional" game made up of ex NCAA players before it was made into a movie and discontinued.

      Hey Randy...You are just the kind of guy we're looking for. We want to honor you and your Pigs & Freaks buddies. Please contact me directly via email or via phone 586-863-8338. Thanks for the post about the history of the Pigs vs Freaks game. We're actually looking at resurrecting it.
