Kids activities at the ballpark: the Growlers Cub Club which includes an inflatable bounce house/slide and an inflatable pitch and catch game. There is also a spin wheel where kids can spin to win prizes. Fridays and Saturdays there will be pre-game autograph sessions.
The Kalamazoo Growlers will have a lot of giveaways scheduled throughout the season including posters, Detroit Tigers bobble heads, and thunderstix.
