COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WZZM) - After rain kept the West Michigan Whitecaps from holding Opening Day festivities Thursday, the team went into a rain delay ahead of Friday's game, too.
Shortly after 8 p.m., though, the Whitecaps and the Dayton Dragons lined up for the national anthem and the game got underway.
Gates opened at 5 p.m., and mittens were given away to the first 1,000 fans. Post-game fireworks are scheduled, too. The game itself was scheduled for a 6:35 p.m. start, but rain moving into the area prompted the grounds crew to pull out the tarps shortly after 6 p.m.
By about 11 p.m., the Whitecaps won, 5-4.
