The SPORTS PAGE was a weekly newspaper published in Bay City, Michigan in the years 1976 to 1984.

The widely read paper was sold by subscription and deliverd to the home. Coverage included stories about all amateur sports played in the region.

In the years since that paper ceased publication people continue to ask if it can be revived. That is not likely, but the ARCHIVE of old issues is still in the possession of the publisher.

Recently an effort has been made to make the contents of the paper available on-line. All of the back issues have been scanned and are in the process of being uploaded to the internet. A searchable index will be made available, on a subscription basis, so anyone can search for articles about their friends and relativer, or even themselves!

Watch for more information on the exciting new resource.
