GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – It’s a big day for the West Michigan Whitecaps, not only is it Opening Day but the team is celebrating its 30th anniversary season. To celebrate, the Whitecaps are hosting over 30 theme nights and a full schedule of promotions for fans throughout the season.

There will be a new Friday promotion, called Flashback Fry-days, where reserved seat pricing will flash back to $12.50, there will be a featured flashback food item and the team will wear specialty jerseys.
