Baseball is cool again in the Creek

One team left baseball in this town dead. The Jacks are here to revive it.

By Denny Smith, General Manager

Let me paint a picture for you: Cracker Jacks, popcorn, ice cream, summer nights, hot dogs, cold beer, the crack of the bat, the excitement in the grandstands. The sport that captured the hearts of thousands in the Battle Creek area is cool, once again. America’s national pastime has been a longstanding tradition in Battle Creek. Dating back to the 1800’s, the city’s best players put on awe inspiring performances playing the sport they loved in front of fans they loved.

However, it hasn’t always been the perfect picture painted above. This community was rocked pretty hard by a global pandemic, and its impact also changed their baseball team. The Battle Creek Bombers had been a staple for nearly 15 years, but unfortunately, had to close its doors due to lowering attendance and fans losing love for this city’s pastime. Needless to say, baseball got stale – and that’s where we come in.

With the resurrection of baseball in 2022, we promised the City of Battle Creek that those good old days of America’s national pastime would not die out. By bringing back an exhilarating atmosphere, competitive baseball, and a “for the fans” attitude that this community had been longing for, baseball, once again, is cool again in Battle Creek.

Because of this, we wanted to celebrate. We designed an incredible, affordable, totally awesome membership as a way to reward our best fans and to bring even more new fans to our ballpark. We call it the Meijer Kennel Club 5-pack plan.
