    The West Michigan Whitecaps are gearing up for a veritable grand slam of entertainment this Spring, along with some culinary surprises.

    “This year, we are holding a chef’s competition in Food Network’s “Chopped” style, where they will compete against each other to come up with our ultimate fan food, which will be featured on the concessions menu for the season,” said Lynn Tuori, the team’s director of marketing ahead of the season opener.

    The winning dishes? Dugout tots, fry-cuterie boxs, pulled pork on pretzel buns, rice bowls, cheese wedges, big beef sandwiches, jalapeño bacon firecrackers, and more are now available, along with more than 50 local beers on tap.

    Next weekend boasts a lineup of fun theme days at the park. Check it out!

    The dog days of Spring?
    On May 9, baseball fans are invited to bring “Fido” along for a day of tail-wagging fun. This canine companion event is coupled with Michigan Army National Guard Thrifty Thursday, featuring $2 hot dogs, Pepsi products and draft beers.

    Friday, May 10, marks School Day, where young fans take center stage for a morning of educational programming. Meanwhile, the first 2,500 children through the gates will receive push pop toys, courtesy of Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Care Network of Michigan. And for all attendees, HopCat FRY-days promise free Cosmik Fries, adding an extra dash of flavor to the experience.

    Saturday, May 11 brings Military Appreciation Night, a poignant tribute to the brave men and women who have served our country. Active and former military members and their families are invited to enjoy discounted tickets and a special salute during the game. After the game, spectators will be treated to dazzling post-game fireworks.

    Paint the Park Pink— Bring Mom!
    On Sunday, May 12, the stadium will transform into a sea of pink for Paint the Park Pink. Proceeds from this event benefit breast cancer awareness initiatives. Families can also partake in Corewell Health Family Sunday festivities, complete with complimentary meals for the first 1,000 children, pre-game activities, and post-game base running.
