COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WOOD) - Have you ever wanted to cut the grass at a ballpark stadium?
Now is your chance!
West Michigan Whitecaps Facebook fans are invited to enter the “Mow the Field” contest to win the opportunity to cut the infield and outfield grass at Fifth Third Ballpark.
A winner will be selected from all Facebook entrants, and then join head groundskeeper Michael Huie’s crew for a day this fall and take the reins of a Toro Triplex riding turf mower to groom the field.
Fans may enter the contest through Oct. 21, and the winner will be selected that week.
The Whitecaps’ home opener for the 2014 season is April 8. Season tickets and mini-plans go on sale Oct. 22.
