The West Michigan Whitecaps, a Single A affiliate of Detroit, play at Fifth/Third Ballpark. This stadium, faced in siding instead of the usual brick, was built in 1994, with seating for 9,684. The suites did not have any seating outside of them. There are several different ways to have party groups down the field lines or in the outfield areas. Seats, below the aisle, and bleachers with backs, above the aisle, are located within the foul poles with a little lawn seating just before you get to the poles. Bleachers with backs are located in right centerfield. The Whitecaps were playing the Lansing Lugnuts in a well pitched game on both sides. The Lugnuts won the game 2-1. The box score was Lugnuts R-2, H-9, E-0 and Whitecaps R-1, H-2, E-0. The field lines are RF-327', CF-402', and LF-317'. Myron Noodleman was the between inning entertainer and also in the crowd during the game keeping everyone laughing. He and a Lugnuts player were mimicking each other as a coach passing hand signals to the players. Crash the River Rascal is the mascot. There is a good selection of food at the concession stands with a common price of $4.50 for sandwiches. The Northview Wildcats All-Star team from the Rocket Little Leage went on the field for the national anthem. These boys are 11 and 12 years-old.
