There's so much to love about West Michigan Whitecaps games! Their fun menu, $2 beers and hot dogs on Thrifty Thursdays, and oh yeah, watching our Whitecaps play too!
Well fans at Fifth Third Ballpark on Tuesday had more to watch than the game -- A Michigan man broke a world record with 934 push-ups while wearing a 40-pound backpack, MLive reports.
Want to be a successful minor league baseball team? You'd better be ready to combine one part Babe Ruth and one part PT Barnum. The Grand Rapids based West Michigan Whitecaps do that better than just about any team - like the one time when an elephant threw out the first pitch.
There's no doubt about it, Grand Rapids is an awesome city. We've got lots of attractions and fun things always going on, we're a family friendly city and appeal to the younger crowd as well. Grand Rapids has A LOT to offer so no wonder why we make so many "best of" lists...
All good things come to an end, and for the Caps tonight was that ending point. A long rain delay and a fast start from the visiting Ft. Wayne TinCaps ended the West Michigan season at Fifth Third ballpark Friday night 6-2.
The West Michigan Whitecaps, have had a great season so far. Very few bad weather days and nights at Fifth Third Ballpark, a fine team on the field that has already made the playoffs, and the usual assortment of great food, family fun, and wacky promotions.
Baseball is a sport that has been built on traditions for more than 150 years. Tonight, tradition will meet the future when the West Michigan Whitecaps host the first-ever game played by using equipment printed by 3D, or additive manufacturing, technology.
In more way than one! Normally on Fridays, a former Tigers great is at Fifth Third Ballpark, to sihn autographs and have fun with the fans. And tonight is no exception. Former Tiger great Glenn Wilson will be at the ballpark as the 'Caps take on Bowling Green!
