Whitecaps Opening Day is here!

COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WZZM) - It is Opening Day for the West Michigan Whitecaps and just three months after a devastating fire in January, Fifth Third Ballpark is ready to go.

We'll have live reports all day from the ballpark, including the game itself, starting at 6:30pm.

At Noon Tuesday, Sarah Sell got a surprise visit from Ben Verlander, Justin's younger brother.

Tuesday morning, Jennifer Pascua spoke with Wolverine Construction about the rebuilding process.


Jennifer also spoke with the radio voice of the Whitecaps, Ben Chiswick.


And, Jennifer dressed up as a hamburger and interviewed another hamburger, the Whitecaps Mickey Graham, and things got out of hand.


Amanda Bol and her son Reese won the WZZM Facebook contest and will throw out the first pitch with Aaron Ofseyer at tonight's game. Juliet Dragos and others will lead the crowd in singing Take Me Out To The Ballgame at the 7th Inning Stretch. Lauren Stanton, Catherine Behrendt, and Stephanie Webb will also be at the game meeting fans.

We'll have more throughout the day.
