Batter up!

My husband and I had the great opportunity to go to a Great Lakes Loons game in Midland, Michigan. If you’re unfamiliar with the Loons, they are part of the Class A baseball league. They play teams such as the Lansing Lugnuts and the West Michigan Whitecaps. The team moved to Midland in 2006 after being in Battle Creek for a decade.

Like many Class A league games, the draw in attendance is more than just about baseball. These games are a great place for entertainment for every age. Admittance is incredibly reasonable, with lawn seats only costing $6. There’s pre-game entertainment most nights, as well as giveaways and fun activities during the game. The night we were there they had the most amazing acrobats called the Chicago Boyz. I was truly blown away by their skills! You have to watch their audition from America’s Got Talent. Their abilities and their story is awe inspiring.

Gluten Free Ballgame Fireworks

Of course, like all Class A games, there was a spectacular fireworks display at the end of the night.

What sets this ballpark apart from others are the gluten-free options that they offer. I was amazed at all they had to offer, from individually wrapped gluten-free hamburger and hot dog buns, to the signage around the park. It’s not just that they have a list of gluten-free options – their staff is trained well also.

When I had a few questions about their gluten-free options the Dow Diamond service director, Gary, came out to answer any questions I had personally. He assured me that staff is trained in ways to prevent cross-contact, including changing gloves between service. All of their barbecue services, as well as their nacho chips and sausages. Even all the meat at Cactus Carlos Super Nachos is gluten-free!
