Both the Kalamazoo Growlers and the Battle Creek Bombers kicked off their seasons this week, and to get fans in seats, both teams are using promotions like fireworks, giveaways, even events like “Redneck Night” at the park. The Bombers, though, are trying out a questionably delicious culinary strategy, too.


Pedro Sierra, a native of Cuba, will join the Kalamazoo minor league baseball team in time for the start of the 2015 season.

On Saturday you will get a chance to see what baseball would have looked like 150 years ago. It’s the last game of the season for the Continental Base Ball Club of Kalamazoo . The game starts at 4 p.m. at Flesher Field in Oshtemo. A vintage base ball team supported by Kalamazoo’s Historical Society.
