The Great Lakes Loons are once again looking for special fans willing to be host families for the 2017 season. Host families play a vital role in making a player's experience with the Great Lakes Loons one that will be enjoyable, memorable and allow them to perform at their peak while playing in Midland.
The Loons are pleased to announce a partnership with GoGreat.com as the presenting sponsor of the 2017 Midwest League All-Star Game in Midland on June 19-20 at Dow Diamond. The MWL All-Star Game presented by GoGreat.com will be held on June 20, while other festivities will include the Midwest League Home Run Derby and All-Star Tailgate, both of which will be held on June 19.
According to the website "Stadium Journey," the home of the Great Lakes Loons ranks among the best ballparks in all of Minor League Baseball. In the "2016 MiLB Ballpark Experience Rankings," Dow Diamond checked in at No. 14 on the list. The Loons are one of four teams from the Midwest League to be included.
If you didn't follow the Loons story this past year, or if you did and want to relive it, you're in luck. Our in-house production team has spent the last 12 weeks creating "The Journey to a Championship," a documentary that tells not only the story of how the team came to Midland, Michigan, but the historic 2016 season that culminated in the Loons winning their MWL Championship.
