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.

  1. 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.

    Awesome pics! Now, the question is: did you slam down one of those 5/3 burgers they’re famous for? Yummmmmmmy.

  4. Love the pictures of the boys autographin–and all the picture in general. Looks like a beautiful stadium.

    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.
