MIDLAND, Mich. -- It's that time of year! We've reached the point in the calendar when everyone wants to know what fun things the Great Lakes Loons have planned for the upcoming summer of baseball at Dow Diamond! We're excited to share the bulk of that news with our fans this week!

With the Loons away from town for the first week this year, our Opening Day Celebration will be Thursday, April 16 at 6:05 p.m. when we host the West Michigan Whitecaps. The first 1,000 fans will receive a magnet schedule presented by Farm Bureau Insurance with a postgame Fireworks Loontacular to cap of the celebration!

Dominating the headlines for a second straight year is our Celebrity Series presented by MidMichigan Health. Six different nights this season the Loons will also break out brand new one-of-a-kind specialty jerseys. Plus, weekly specials for each day of the week are back, with a couple twists!

New for the 2020 campaign, every Friday and Saturday home game beginning with Memorial Day Weekend will feature a Fireworks Loontacular. In total, 19 shows will light up the skies directly above center field, the most we've ever put on the schedule in our 14 years. We'll also be hosting 12 different Community Nights that will highlight some of the best cities our region has to offer! Fans living in those areas are encouraged to come to their town's designated game to support and celebrate their community.

But that's not all! Faith & Family Nights presented by Life Church will be held on June 27, July 16 and August 23. Youth Clinics presented by Farm Bureau Insurance are back and will take place prior to Sunday afternoon games on May 3 and June 7. The best field trip ever is our School Kids Days presented by CMU on April 30, May 13 and May 28. Games will start at 10:35 a.m. on those days.

The next generation of Los Angeles Dodgers players will also be hosting the annual Loons Summer Baseball Camp with manager and camp director John Shoemaker July 29-30. The camp is for kids ages 7-12 and teaches various aspects of hitting, throwing, fielding, and pitching from professional baseball players.

Below, you'll find a comprehensive list of MOST of the fun things we have planned for the summer! Single game tickets go on sale on Monday, March 2, with season ticket packages on sale now!
