New Features at Dow Diamond
We’re already nearing the end of May and schools will soon be out for the summer! The Loons season is in full swing at Dow Diamond and many of you may be thinking of coming out to a game for the first time in 2013.
Before you do come out, FTN wants to tell you about a few things that you may not have seen at Dow Diamond in past Loons seasons.
Nothing says summer time better than a Summer Shandy at a ball game. This season, the Loons are offering a wide-array of new beverages around the stadium. One place you will be able to get these drinks is at the new “Leinie Lodge.” Adirondack chairs and corn hole games are located on the concourse along the first-base line near Lou E’s Lookout at the Leinie Lodge, where you can enjoy some bottled Leinenkugel’s beer, maybe with some souvenir peanuts.
MAC MAC MAC GONE
Sure, everybody loves a hot dog or bratwurst at the ballpark, but how about a different American classic to change up your baseball palette. At the “Mac Mac Mac Gone” stand located behind Section 107, the Loons offer macaroni and cheese as a main dish which is sure to excite both young fans and long-time visitors to Dow Diamond. But it doesn’t stop at just plain mac n’ cheese; we’ve got some flavors that will throw your taste buds for a loop, including BLT, Pizza and Veggie, Chicken Enchilada and Lobster (!). You’ve got to try it!
With so much happening at Dow Diamond during a Loons game, wouldn’t it be helpful if everything you needed to know was all in one place? Now it is with the new free Loons Boomaphone App for Apple and Android devices. You can customize the app so it fits your baseball experience. Promotions, player stats and bios, or contests, whatever it is that you like, the app can give it to you. You can also participate in things happening during the game. Guess winners, sign-up for contests and even get coupons sent right to your phone. Using Twitter, fans call also send photos, answer trivia questions and request a song to be played by the Loons production staff! This is the ultimate tool that every Loons fan should have.
A lot of sporting events has a 50/50 raffle. With the help of the Michigan Baseball Foundation, so do the Loons. But instead of going home with just a couple hundred bucks (pshaw), you’ll have the chance to win a whole lot more than that if you’re chosen as the participant. During the bottom of the sixth inning at each Loons home game, you’ll hear public address announcer Jerry O’Donnell introduce the contestant for the Miller Lite Grand Slam Inning. If the Loons get the bases loaded in that inning, and someone hits a grand slam, the lucky participant will take home $5,000! You can sign up at guest services along the first-base line, or on the Loons Boomaphone App.
