Experience the thrill of a West Michigan Whitecaps game
The West Michigan Whitecaps is one of the most successful minor league baseball teams in the Midwest League. Based in Grand Rapids, the second largest city in Michigan, they’ve been delighting local baseball fans ever since the team was established in 1994. Whether you’re looking to catch a home game or support the team on one of their away games in the Midwest, StubHub is the perfect place to buy West Michigan Whitecaps tickets.
One of the most successful teams of the Midwest League
Although Grand Rapids has a long history of professional baseball teams, it had been without one for forty years (ever since the Grand Rapids Chicks disbanded) until the West Michigan Whitecaps arrived in 1994. With so many baseball fans in the area, they quickly gained a huge following, and it wasn’t long until they achieved success. Their first championship title came just two years later in 1996 (when they beat the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers [link]), the first time a team from Grand Rapids had ever won a professional league title. In the following years, they went on to win the championship many times, such as when they beat Kane County Cougars in both 2004 and 2006 and the Cedar Rapids Kernels in 2015. They’re also affiliated with the Major League Baseball team Detroit Tigers, with dozens of Whitecaps going on to play for the Tigers and other Major League Baseball teams—a testament to the quality of the team. If something comes up and you can’t attend a game, simply use StubHub to sell your West Michigan Whitecaps tickets.
The incredible atmosphere of the West Michigan Whitecaps stadium
The name White Michigan Whitecaps was chosen by the local fans. Like many baseball team names, it’s based on their uniform (the white colour of their baseball caps), but it’s also a nod to local geography, named after the "whitecapping" that occurs on the nearby Grand River and Lake Michigan. The team has a fantastic home, too. The Fifth Third Ballpark is located in Comstock Park and has a capacity of roughly 9,000—so you can always expect an electrifying atmosphere at the West Michigan Whitecaps stadium. There is a solid cohort of fans that travel to support them on away games, too, and one of the most fiercely fought fixtures is against the Whitecaps’ state rivals, the Great Lakes Loons. The love of the fans isn’t just a one-way affair, either. The team does a lot of charity work in the local area, making the team a much-respected and important part of the community.
