Here’s how the West Michigan Whitecaps rebuilt Fifth Third Ballpark

Back in January, Fifth Third Ballpark (home of the West Michigan Whitecaps of the Midwest League) caught on fire. It was a terrifying situation, and the community in Comstock, Michigan was devastated after the incident.

Immediately after the fire, Whitecaps management vowed that they would play in 2014, and that their resolve would not break. On Tuesday night, baseball returns to Comstock at Fifth Third Ballpark, and the above time-lapse video of the rebuilding of the park is nothing short of amazing. My hat is off to everyone with the Whitecaps and the local community that got the park ready for Opening Day – this was awesome.
