First Signs of Spring: 4Topps Tickets and Opening Day Bash on Sale Now

The countdown is on toward the 2017 baseball season! The first signs of spring are appearing in the baseball world, as pitchers and catchers prepare to report for spring training and the Whitecaps front office prepares to put tickets on sale for the 24th season of baseball at Fifth Third Ballpark. 

Tickets for the Safeco Insurance 4Topps tables and tickets for the 2017 Opening Day Bash go on sale to the public today.

The Safeco Insurance 4Topps include four swivel chairs at a rounded table behind home plate, with exclusive wait service so you don’t have to wait in concessions stand lines. Tickets for Safeco Insurance 4Topps tables are $110, and all dates on the 2017 schedule will be available for sale starting today. The 4Topps area was expanded to a total of 30 tables a year ago due to popular demand but continues to sell out, so fans are encouraged to order their 4Topps tickets early. 

The Opening Day Bash is a special event in the indoor Pepsi Stadium Club overlooking right field on Thursday, April 6th, for the 6:35 p.m.opening day game against the South Bend Cubs. In addition to access to the Pepsi Stadium Club, each ticket includes an all-you-can-eat barbeque from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for $26 per person. The Pepsi Stadium Club is usually rented to large groups for Whitecaps games (as well as year-round for non-Whitecaps events), so the Opening Day Bash is a great way for individual fans to enjoy a game from the climate-controlled club.

Fans can order 4Topps tickets and Opening Day Bash tickets online (www.whitecapsbaseball.com), by phone (616-784-4131), or in person at the Fifth Third Ballpark administrative offices (4500 West River Drive, Comstock Park; follow the signs for Administrative Offices). Ticket sales hours at the Administrative Offices are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday 

Regular game tickets for all 70 home games in the 2017 season will go on sale Tuesday, February 21st. Discounted tickets for groups of 20 or more are on sale now, as are season ticket packages, including mini plans, partial season, flex books and full season plans. 

The Whitecaps’ 24th opening day is set for Thursday, April 6th, at 6:35 p.m. against the South Bend Cubs. The first 1,200 fans through the gates will receive a Whitecaps Alpine Hat courtesy of Fifth Third Bank. Post-game Family Fare Fireworks will conclude the opening day celebration.
