Whitecaps postponed again in Lansing

For the second consecutive day, the West Michigan Whitecaps' scheduled season-opener was postponed due to unplayable field conditions at Cooley Law School Stadium in Lansing on Friday. On Thursday night, a mysterious surplus of moisture began to surface on the infield approximately four hours before game time. A doubleheader was set for Friday - but, as the scheduled 5:05 p.m. first pitch approached, it became clear that the soggy infield was still not playable.

The two clubs will try to kick off the new season again today with a doubleheader scheduled for 2:05 p.m.

At this point, no decision has been made regarding a makeup date or time for the second postponed game.

The Whitecaps are scheduled to open the home portion of their schedule against the Lugnuts with a 1 p.m. start on Sunday at Fifth Third Ballpark.
Gates will open early at 11 a.m.
