Opening Week schedule

April 5th is the Crosstown Showdown against Michigan State, presented by Auto-Owners Insurance - and we are all sold out of box seats.  Reserved seats and lawn seats are still available, and the game is just six days away.  Get in on this and get your tickets!

MLive.com's Larry Hook provides a preview of what's to come.

Next week's full schedule...

  • Monday:  The Lugnuts arrive in Lansing.
  • Wednesday:  "Meet the Team!"  Starting at 6:30 p.m., we'll introduce you to the 2012 Lansing Lugnuts.  Just come on over to Cooley Law School Stadium and head up to The Clubhouse, our suite-level lounge.  Mingle, get autographs, and welcome the new players to town.
  • Thursday:  7:05 p.m. Crosstown Showdown vs. MSU, with Thirsty Thursday drink specials.  The first 2,000 fans through the gates get commemorative baseballs, too.
  • Friday:  7:05 p.m. Opening Day vs. Great Lakes, along with a Facebook Friday.  Interact with us over Facebook and win great prizes.
  • Saturday:  Yooper Day Doubleheader, starting at 2:05 p.m. vs. Great Lakes.

Listen in to my appearance on Thursday on Ginger and the Geek with Dan Hogan.

My newest article for TheGoodPoint.com focuses on Magic Johnson, the famous part of the Dodgers' new ownership team.  For extra credit, enjoy the difference between how TGP summarized the piece on their front page and my central point in the article.  I'm not sure they understood what I was getting at.

The sad news around here is that Julia, our Director of Marketing, will be leaving the Lugnuts to accept a sterling position at Michigan State University.  It's tough to lose her, but we're terrifically happy that she's attained such a great spot.  Her spot will be hard to fill, but we'll do our best finding someone superb - and now she gets to cheer on the Lugnuts as a fan.  Can't beat that.

Finally, yes, this is a bad video for the Maple Leafs -- but outstanding for the Lugnuts' parent club.
