MIDLAND, Mich. - Friday's scheduled game between the Great Lakes Loons and Lansing Lugnuts has been postponed. The decision was made considering current weather and field conditions, along with the forecast throughout the rest of the evening for Midland. The game will be made up on Sunday, April 8, as part of a doubleheader in Lansing at Cooley Law School Stadium. Both games of the doubleheader will be seven-inning contests beginning at 1:05 p.m., separated by a half-hour break.

This comes on the heels of the Loons playing their first true "Opening Day" game since 2014 on Thursday. The three previous seasons we're all dampened by poor weather and field conditions. The Lugnuts prevailed 12-1 in front of 1,764 fans at Dow Diamond.

Fans that purchased tickets for Friday's game may exchange them at the Dow Diamond box office for tickets of equal or lesser value to any Loons home game during the 2018 season, based on availability.

Coverage from Lansing this weekend with Chris Vosters can be heard on ESPN 100.9-FM. Pregame coverage on Saturday will begin at 5:05 p.m. and 12:35 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. Loons games can be heard on ESPN 100.9-FM, ESPN1009.com, Loons.com and on mobile devices using the TuneIn App.

The Loons will return to Dow Diamond next weekend for a three-game homestand against the Dayton Dragons on April 13-15. Friday's game will begin at 6:05 p.m., while Saturday and Sunday will both be matinees starting at 2:05 p.m.

The Great Lakes Loons have been the Single-A partner of the Los Angeles Dodgers since the team's inception in 2007. Dow Diamond serves as the team's home and also houses the Michigan Baseball Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, and ESPN 100.9-FM.
