LANSING, Mich. - Go Nuts for a star-studded summer! The Lansing Lugnuts today officially released the schedule for their 23rd season, featuring 17 LAFCU Fireworks Spectaculars - including the 54th annual Midwest League All-Star Game presented by LAFCU, set for Tuesday, June 19th, at Cooley Law School Stadium.
"The opportunity to host the Midwest League All-Star Game and showcase both the city of Lansing and Cooley Law School Stadium comes around only once every 16 years," said Lugnuts general manager Nick Grueser. "Working with our great partners at LAFCU, we're going to make sure the 2018 Midwest League All-Star Game will be an unforgettable experience."
The last Midwest League All-Star Game hosted by the Lugnuts was in 2002, welcoming in a record attendance of 10,334 for the East's 6-3 win over the West.
The 2018 Lansing Lugnuts season begins with an Opening Day Block Party on Saturday, April 7th, vs. the Great Lakes Loons, the first of the 17 postgame LAFCU Fireworks shows. Five months later on Tuesday, September 4th, the Lugnuts host the Michigan State Spartans in the Crosstown Showdown presented by Auto-Owners Insurance. In between, plan to spend your holidays at the ballpark: The Nuts are home on Memorial Day, Father's Day and Independence Day.
That's not all: The Lugnuts have even more promotions, specials and surprises in store for 2018, to be revealed after the new year!
