COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. – The West Michigan Whitecaps kick off their 20th season on Thursday night at 6:35 p.m. with plenty of fun and great deals planned for fans.

The first 1,500 fans will receive a 20th season hat, courtesy of Fifth Third Bank.  Not only that, but it’s also Thrifty Thursday presented by Altogas.  That means $1.00 hot dogs and $2.00 20 oz. beers through the seventh inning.  Kids can also enjoy face painting, jugglers, and more.

Following the game, there will be a fireworks display presented by Family Fare.

The Whitecaps will be playing against the Dayton Dragons.  Gates open at 5:00 p.m. and the first pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
