Lansing Lugnuts Face MSU Spartans In Crosstown Showdown

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, MI (WLNS) - For Lugnuts fans, the long wait is over.  

The Lansing Lugnuts will square off for the first time this season against their crosstown competition, the MSU Spartans.

It's the 8th annual Crosstown Showdown and one of the biggest nights of baseball at Cooley Law School Stadium.

The tarp is ready on the field in downtown Lansing, the grass is cut and the players are anxious for game time.

Thousands of people are expected at the ball park. If you're one of the first 2,000 fans you will receive a baseball with both the Lugnuts and Spartans logos. 

"Michigan state will play every single player on their roster to give them that taste of playing this game in front of such a showcase. Our fans show up in such great amounts. Our three largest crowds in stadium history have all been there for this game," said Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, Voice of Lansing Lugnuts.

The Crosstown Showdown starts at 7:05 p.m.

If you're looking for a safe means of transportation after the game, CATA will have several busses downtown.
