Hunter is my 8 year old son, in case you didn't know. So he's a pretty big baseball fan, so thanks to the good people at the Whitecaps (Mickey Graham) we went to his second Caps game! We went with his older sister (NOT a fan) three years ago, and she was so bored we had to leave early. So Sunday being Kids' day, the little man and I went to the ballyard in Comstock Park!
Its getting all kinds of national attention. The Whitecaps do this kind of stuff better than just about anybody when it comes to generating publicity in introducing a new food item. In the spirit of the "5th 3rd Burger" and "Chicks with Sticks" comes the newest creation of the 'Caps and 5th 3rd Ballpark. The Baco. The What?
The baseball season is quickly coming to an end. The Tigers are right in the thick of the AL Central playoff race. The Whitecaps, like most of minor league baseball, have been done for about a month now. But even though, the Caps and Fifth Third Ballpark keep getting great national press! Long live the Fifth Third Burger!
It was the WFGR Listener Appreciation Party at the Whitecaps game Wednesday! A great time was had by all (an even better time was had by a few!) AND the 'Caps won 3-2! So far in WFGR nights we are 1-1! On a One game winning streak! Enjoy the views of summer baseball and good looking WFGR listeners...oh and Cluck!
The Whitecaps have hit the "Dog Days of Summer" literally and figuratively! It's August, so the stretch run is here for the season. The Caps are currently 5 games out and the host the team ahead of them in the standings, the Lake County Captains. Here's a chance for the Caps to m,ake up some ground and enjoy some home cookin' as well! Speaking of dogs and home cookin' at 5th 3rd Ballpark...
The Tiger that was many fans "Tiger" is hanging it up. The hero of the 2006 American League Championship series Magglio Ordonez is retiring this weekend with a ceremony at Comerica Park. The image of the homer he hit to send the Tigs to the World Series only three years after the team lost 119 games is burned in many Michigan sports fans' memory.
The Fox Sports Detroit girls will be making a special appearance at Rosa Parks Circle Friday afternoon with Whitecaps tickets and your chance to get pictures! The scenery might be pretty good! Win Whitecaps tix for knowing trivia answers, and meet the sexy ladies from FSN Detroit!
It was a chilly, windy Home Opener for the Whitecaps Monday Night, but the good guys took the first home game 4-0 over Bowling Green! WFGR, Cluck and 5,173 were on hand with our Townsquare Media counterparts to welcome in the 2012 Midwest League season! 70-0 at home this season? I think so!
Not much else is like baseball opening day here in Michigan. I have a couple personal Opening Day stories, but first, I start with the late Ernie Harwell's Ode to Spring. He would always read the Song of Solomon 2:11-12 before the first Spring Training game every year. Even though it's Opening Day, it still is fitting and is part of the lore of Baseball in America.
You have to hand it to the Whitecaps. On probably one of the coldest and snowiest stretches of the winter so far, they have us thinking about baseball! And about food! It's your chance to inspire ballpark eating greatness! The Whitecaps are looking for the next 5th 3rd Burger or Sticks and Chicks!
