The Whitecaps Professional Baseball Corporation's mission is to provide affordable family entertainment to the West Michigan community. By providing friendly faces, open minds, our time and energy, we welcome you as our guest and hope you return as a fan!
The West Michigan Whitecaps are a professional minor league baseball team. A member of the 16-team Midwest League and Class A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers, the Whitecaps play 70 home and 70 road games each season. "Home" is Fifth Third Ballpark, a privately-owned stadium built in conjunction with the Whitecaps' arrival in 1994, located in Comstock Park, MI (seven miles north of Grand Rapids, MI).
The Whitecaps are co-owned by local businessmen Lew Chamberlin of Grand Rapids and Dennis Baxter of Muskegon. For more on the ownership and history of the team, see the History page.
