On Sunday the 'Lansing Lugnuts' became the 'Lansing Locos' in honor of Copa de la Diversión, which is a program aimed at connecting professional teams with their diverse communities.

Cooley Law School Stadium, home of the Lansing Lugnuts baseball team, has transformed its field into an 18-hole miniature golf course for the week. The turf was installed in 2005 and will be replaced come next baseball season. What better way to say goodbye to the old real-estate than to play a little golf?
