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.

The West Michigan Whitecaps' ownership expects to rebuild Fifth Third Ballpark in the wake of a Friday blaze that damaged the Comstock Park facility.

A space heater started a small blaze Friday morning at the ballpark, but workers believed they had put it out. They returned to find the space in flames, Plainfield Township Fire Chief David Peterson said.

Fifth Third Ballpark is the home of the Midwest League Class A professional baseball team. It is slated to host the 50th Midwest League All-Star Game on June 17, 2014.
