Lansing Lugnuts Open Season Thursday

I am a baseball fan.  I love my Tigers, but like many of you can’t afford  many trips to see them in person due to the astronomical prices of attending a Major League game.  Fortunately, we Flintoids live about an hour away from two minor league teams that are well worth seeing.  I mentioned the Great Lakes Loons in a previous post, but the Lansing Lugnuts are also a team you should check out.

The Lugnuts open their season at home Thursday night at 7 against the West Michigan Whitecaps (Tigers Class A affiliate).  The Lugnuts are the Class A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays and play their games at Cooley Law School Stadium in downtown Lansing.  The ballpark is a beautiful facility and tickets are in just about anybody’s price range, $8 for a lawn seat to 10 bucks for a box seat behind home plate.  “Thirsty Thursdays” are back this season, where you can get two dollar beers and sodas.  And you won’t need to sell a kidney to get some hot dogs or brats.  April 15th is “Yooper Night” where the Lugnuts guarantee the temperature will dip below 60 degrees.  If it doesn’t, you get a free ticket to a future game.  Minor league baseball offers a lot of wacky promotions and is a good value for anybody who loves the game who might want to bring their family with them.  Tickets and other information can be found at:
