Reading Club Update 5/7/2020


UPDATE (5/7/2020) Due to the impact that the coronavirus has had on our state and the start of the Northwoods League season, we are extending the redemption dates for the Pit Spitters Reading Club for the 2020 season. Bookmarks for the Pit Spitters Reading Club presented by Caliber Home Loans and Grand Traverse Resort and Spa can now be redeemed for two tickets for any 2020 Pit Spitters game at Turtle Creek Stadium, based on availability. Those vouchers can also be redeemed for any game in May or June of 2021, excluding Opening Day, and based on availability for those games. Thank you for your participation in the 2020 Pit Spitters Reading Club and for your continued patience and cooperation as we work through this challenging time. We look forward to seeing you at the ballpark again very soon!



We are aware of Governor Whitmer’s decision to close all Michigan schools for the remainder of the school year, which means students will not be able to turn in their completed bookmarks to receive their tickets. At this time, we are optimistic that our season will not be impacted by COVID-19 and we will still be honoring all completed bookmarks. The plan that has been set in place for students to redeem their tickets is below.


  • Students can mail in their bookmarks to us with the completed form that is available here (if you can not print the form, please include a note that includes the following):
    • the student’s name
    • the school the student attends
    • the parent’s name
    • the parent’s e-mail address, phone number, and address
    • what game they would like tickets for
    • How many extra tickets will need to be purchased (if any)
    • method of payment for extra tickets
      • credit card, cash, or check
      • extra tickets will be $10 a piece
    • seating preference
      • first base side
      • third base side
      • behind homeplate
  • Parents can bring the bookmarks to the box office when Turtle Creek Stadium re-opens to the public to exchange for tickets. These will be available at a first come first serve basis and dependent on game availability. Box Office hours are 10:00AM – 6:00PM Monday thru Friday.
