MIDLAND, Mich. -- With a new year comes another season of Great Lakes Loons baseball in our own backyard! It's an exciting time of year with plenty of New Year's Resolutions at the top of everyone's priority list. The Loons are getting in on the fun and making a strong promise to fans this year.
What better way to start a new decade in 2020 than with the most fireworks shows EVER! We have 19 shows scheduled for the upcoming season, the most we've ever committed to for a single summer. That means every Friday & Saturday home game after Memorial Day will have a postgame Fireworks Loontacular lighting up the sky. There will also be fireworks on Opening Night after the game against the Detroit Tigers affiliate West Michigan Whitecaps on Thursday, April 16.
Weeknight games in April and May until Memorial Day will once again start at 6:05 p.m. In recent years, the Loons have also experimented with the unique, closed-concourse concept during the first couple weeks of the season due to the cold temperatures we tend to experience in Michigan. The plan is to continue with the climate-controlled model at the beginning of the 2020 season, which allows fans to sit in the lawn and seating bowl, while also providing them a place to warm up.
Like in past years, Sundays will once again be 2:05 p.m. games all season long.

- Three 'Kids Day' games will begin at 10:35 a.m. on April 30, May 13 & May 28.

- Both holiday games on Memorial Day (May 25) and Labor Day (Sept. 7) will start at 2:05 p.m.
- Back by popular demand is a special Monday matinee that will begin at 12:05 p.m. on July 20.
