Shelby Township, Michigan, is a fairly affluent suburb of Detroit. Shelby Township is a large 36-square-mile jurisdiction with a population of over 50,000. It has many high-quality schools and parks. Within the boundaries of the township lies the city of Utica, a small enclave of just about 5,000 people. The main attraction in Utica is probably Jimmy John’s Field, which hosts the United Shore Professional Baseball League.
