GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (ABC 4)- It’s a big week for the West Michigan Whitecaps! This Tuesday through Sunday, baseball fans, families, and the entire community are invited to LMCU Ballpark to participate in fun daily promotions and, most importantly, cheer on the Whitecaps as they compete to earn a spot in the playoffs. 

Maranda recently visited the ballpark to see what’s in store for the last homestand of the year:
