Stuff For Kids

Whitecaps games are perfect for kids! We have tons of activities including on-field games, play catch, autographs on the field, Kids Run the Bases, airbrush artists and much more! The fun starts when kids enter the stadium and they get a free Crash's Kids program. Make sure you are on the lookout for any of our three of the mascots as they love to high-five and pose for pictures. If you are looking for food we have Kids Meals (offered every game) and fun treats like Dippin' Dots, cotton candy, ice cream, super ropes and more!

A seating suggestion for kids is the Cornerstone University Lawn area. These areas, located on both the first and third base side, are perfect for families. Bring a blanket or some lawn chairs so you can spread out and relax while enjoying the game. As always, make sure to bring your baseball glove. You never know when you will be able to catch a foul ball!

Franky The Swimming Pig

Franky enjoys floating down the Grand River, while snacking on cotton candy and deep fried twinkies. He loves hanging out with his friends Crash & Roxy!

Roxy The River Rascal

You can usually find Roxy dancing on the dugouts at LMCU Ballpark. One of her favorite ballpark foods is a delicious cheeseburger.

Together these three friends make the most entertaining trio in all of Minor League Baseball; signing thousands of autographs and taking hundreds of pictures. Crash, Franky and Roxy make sure every fan feels welcome at LMCU Ballpark.
