LANSING, Mich. - Each night during the summer, Cooley Law School Stadium hosts nine innings of baseball. Next week, grab your putter and play 18 holes of miniature golf on the field instead!

Miniature Golf at the Ballpark, presented by Maple Brook Golf Course and City Limits East, opens on Jackson Field under the lights from 5-10 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday, September 20-22, and from noon-5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, September 24-25.

Rounds are just $5 apiece, and are available for purchase at the stadium box office. Golfers are encouraged to bring their own putters.

A beverage and snacks cart will provide golfers with ready refreshments.

"When you think Lugnuts, you think family-friendly fun for the Mid Michigan community," said general manager Nick Grueser. "With the baseball season over, what better way to use the field than mini golf?"

The course architect is Lenny Yoder, the Lansing Lugnuts' head groundskeeper, who has been kept busy mowing and crafting the familiar outfield grass into greens. "It's our final opportunity to use the current surface before a fresh baseball field is installed for 2017," said Yoder. "This is going to be so much fun for families to experience."
