West Michigan Whitecaps In ‘Anchorman 2′

Facebook

It was a surprise to everyone, even the West Michigan Whitecaps’ front office, when the Midwest League baseball team showed up on the big screen in the just-released “Anchorman 2.”

Find out how it happened and where to watch for them.

A company shot some film of the Whitecaps a couple of years ago to use to sell to movie studios for use in films. That video is in “Anchorman 2.”

Keith Roelfsema, the promotions manager for the Whitecaps, said it was a surprise to him to find out his team was in the film.

Roelfsema said, “There was a company that came out a couple years ago and did some B-roll shooting of baseball games to sell movies for this exact scenario.  So then we contacted our guy and he said the movie was under a different name so we had no idea it was that movie and then the rest is history.”

Watch for the Whitecaps in a sports highlight segment during the film with fictional sportscaster Champ Kind (played by David Koechner).

Stay classy, Grand Rapids.
