Are you thirsty for sports right now. And I'm not just talking about watching a game.

I want to go to one.

You don't know what you got until it's gone and I am seriously missing some Lansing Lugnuts baseball right now.

Sitting in the stands. Watching the game. Singing along. The food. And I know some folks like sweating it out in the daytime because you could skate out of work (especially if you worked downtown) and catch an early game.

But me...I loved the night games. The cool air. The seventh inning stretch. The smell of popcorn in the air. The kids running around having a good time oblivious to what's happening on the field but totally living it up. Every now and then I got to live the high life and get invited up to a suite. Baller. Shot caller. At least that's how it sounded in my head lol.

Man I miss Lugnuts baseball.

And to top it off, THIS YEAR THEY'D BE CELEBRATING THEIR 25TH ANNIVERSARY!

Thanks coronavirus. You hosed us again.

But it's not over yet. We still might get a little bit of a season. Fingers crossed and the folks at Cooley Law School Stadium are taking it day by day. And I'm praying for you guys too.

Now, they still have some events going on. You can find out about Nitro Circus and Beerfest here. Common Ground has been pushed to next year.

And on Memorial Day THIS YEAR, the Lugnuts were supposed to take on the Great Lakes Loons and wear these SWEET patriotic jerseys. Of course the game was a no go because of the shutdown and...you know.

However, YOU can still grab one of the player's jerseys (hurry they are going fast), give a gift to our front line healthcare workers, and help support the food bank.

Here's your chance to grab one of the Special Edition Lansing Lugnuts Official Patriotic Jerseys!  Quantities and sizes are limited, so don't miss out - when these are gone, they are gone for good!

Help us say a HUGE thanks to all of our local essential workers - With each jersey purchase, 4 Lugnuts tickets to a future game will be donated to essential front line healthcare workers!

Limited Time Bonus - 1 FREE official coaches skull batting helmet with each jersey purchase! (size and condition of the helmet will vary) (Lansing Lugnuts)
