Whitecaps Open House
Fifth Third Ballpark-Comstock Park, MI: Yes, I know there is still about ten feet of snow on the ground, but that fact couldn’t keep us from visiting Fifth Third Ballpark over the weekend. The West Michigan Whitecaps held a special Open House for their fans. There were many fun things going on, and the kids and I really had a good time despite the cold. In Michigan, the weather can always be worse, so at least the sun was out for us. Outside, Brian really enjoyed the carnival rides, Trevor showed off his throwing arm, and Lily taught her little brother how to make s’mores! Inside the Pepsi Stadium Club, we enjoyed some free hot dogs, and I was able to purchase some tickets for opening day and another weekend in April. We also got to interact with the Whitecaps’ mascots, Crash and Franky. Crash is all excited, because they will be joined by a female River Rascal on opening day. I was able to get some pictures of the progress of the ballpark reconstruction, also. I really couldn’t believe how many fans showed up, and even the staff on had been a little blown away by the attendance. We all had a great time, and again, it was just nice to get out to the ballpark, no matter what time of year it is.
You don’t know about s’mores? You’re killing me, Smalls!:
Looks like there’s still a lot of snow! But it looks like a good time. Always feels good to have tickets. 🙂
Shannon, there’s still tons of snow up here, but it was warmer today, so I’m hopeful. Definitely having tickets is making the new season a reality. Just can’t wait for that first pitch.
There’s a certain haunting beauty seeing a ball park in the winter.
I agree, Mark, it’s an unaltered land scape. It will look just a beautiful when the grass is green and the sun is shining, though.
