Whitecaps Opening Day

These are some great pics from the West Michigan Whitecaps’ Opening Day at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park, Michigan. The ‘Caps started the season on the road, going 0-3 before picking up their first win in the home opener. They are now 3-4 on the season after taking 2 of 3 from the Fort Wayne TinCaps and beating the Bowling Green Hot Rods in Kentucky in the first meeting ever of the two clubs. I’d love to take credit for these, or at least say that I was there, but I’ll have to wait another two weeks for my first live game. Looking at the pics makes me itchy to hit the road early. Enjoy.

So what do you guys have in the outfield there? I have been to my share of minor league games, and it seems that most of the stadiums have similar builds: small upper decks–if any, of course—and a big ol’ bar in the outfield instead of seats. Port Charlotte and Clearwater both have tiki bars in left. It’s cool stuff.

Rays-the ballpark sports the party deck in right, and the Pepsi Stadium Club in right-center. Thats used all year-round for parties and stuff.
‘D’-I bet the ballpark in Colorado Springs has some beautifull sight lines.
Jeff-havn’t tackled the 5/3 Burger yet…it was tough enough watching Adam Richman do it on ‘Man vs. Food’.
Elizabeth-yeah, the stadium is one of the best in single A. The ‘Caps sign autographs every Sunday, which is good.

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
