Lake County Captains
By Stephanie Metzger
The Lake County Captains will kick off the 2012 season in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but on Tuesday, the team congregated at Classic Park in Eastlake, Ohio for practice and team media day.
Last year, the team ended the season with a 53-86 record, but the numbers don’t necessarily speak for the outcomes. The team was promising in terms of development and now that some core players have accumulated experience, things are looking up.

One of the best ballparks in all of the minor leagues is the Lake County Captains, Classic Park which opened up in 2003. With a capacity of under 10,000, there is no bad seat in the house. With tickets under $10 per ticket a night at Classic Park is a perfect way to enjoy an evening with the family and friends.
If these facts alone don’t entice you to come out to Classic Park this season, here is a list of some of the up coming promotions.
Fireworks!!!! – If it is a Friday or Saturday night game and the Captains are home, you can guarantee that there will be fireworks after the game.
