COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WOOD) - Baseball season is just around the corner and it's going to be a big one for the West Michigan Whitecaps. This year, the Whitecaps are celebrating their 20th season of playing ball. Before the first pitch is thrown and the line-up cards are filled out, there is an important order of business to take care of. The menu!
The Whitecaps are soliciting ideas for new food items to be served this summer at Fifth Third Ballpark. Fans can submit their ideas regarding what new food items they would like to see served at Fifth Third Ballpark.
This is the fourth year that food ideas submitted by fans will find their way onto the Fifth Third Ballpark menu. The first year a couple of sandwiches, the Cudighi Yooper sandwich and the Declaration of Indigestion made the cut. The second year the fans took a different approach with the ultra healthy Chicks with Sticks (celery, carrots and hummus dish) and last year the oversized Westside Po' Boy came out as the champion.
Earlier this year, the Whitecaps took ideas from fans and have narrowed it down to ten finalists. Starting on Tuesday, February 19, fans will be able to vote for their choice for the new 2013 concessions item. Voting will take place at www.whitecapsbaseball.com through Monday, March 4. The winning entry will be on the menu for all fans to enjoy.
The Whitecaps open the 2013 home season on Monday, April 4 against the Dayton Dragon at 6:35 pm. Season and group tickets are now on sale. Get more information at www.whitecapsbaseball.com .
