Two young Detroit professionals are working to bring some positive national/international attention to Detroit by hosting the world’s largest ever dodgeball game at Belle Isle on Saturday, August 20, 2011. To ensure they smash the current record of 3,500 players, "Dodgeball in the D" needs more players to register in advance at www.dodgeballinthed.com. They are also looking for more volunteers and sponsors for the event and its surrounding festivities.

WDET's Rob St. Mary sits down with the event's co-creators, Justin Jacobs, founder of Come Play Detroit and Marlowe Stoudamire to learn more about this event and its mission.
