Season (& Night(s)) to Remember

Well, West Michigan: it was not the way we wanted it to end, losing the final two games at home by one run each time. BUT – you lost several key players and still provided the river with one helluva season.

I elected to listen to game three on the radio and hear the roar from the crowd after attending game two live. I love my city so much, and not going sucked, but my foot was so sore. We lost in extra innings after another 2-out rally tied it in the bottom of the ninth.

I got up the next morning so grateful to watch Michigan play and get back up on the horse. Then, the Lions really picked up the state with a wonderful home opener vs. a talented Arizona squad.

I’m so proud of Grand Rapids & of Michigan. We’re still the Calder Cup champs, baby!

Thanks again, Whitecaps – can’t wait ’til 2018…

    They deserved better but we lost a lot of guys to call ups and there was still plenty of action and bases loaded excitement. We still broke our old record for most shutouts in the regular season so see you in the spring folks.
