Cardboard Bobsleds Successfully Crashed Down the Cannonsburg Hillside Today

Today's Cardboard Bobsled event at Cannonsburg was something I've been looking forward to for quite a while now!  What could be more fun than a bunch of people out on a hill, building bobsleds from cardboard and duct tape, not caring if the thing really held up on the way down the slope?

Thanks to everyone who came out and had fun with us today!  More than 50 bobsleds raced at least partway down the slope, creatively decorated and with people in costume, to the amusement of all.

Whitecaps Tickets on Sale Saturday at Fifth Third Ballpark Open House

Play ball!

Baseball is just around the corner; really. Spring training and the regular season bring us eternal hope that the snow will be gone and it will be warm!

For the West Michigan Whitecaps, their season will open soon enough, and, yes, at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park. Construction continues and crews work to restore the first base side of the ballpark from the disastrous fire earlier this year. 

However, Fifth Third Ballpark will be open Saturday, Feb. 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for an open house to celebrate the start of individual game ticket sales for the 2014 season.
