No matter what sport, Sparty brings toughness and mad skills. Watch out Big Lug!

Sparty versus Big Lug is a pretty intriguing match-up. You’ve got two long-time Lansing area mascot entities, Sparty obviously gets the nod for strength and general awesomeness, but Big Lug is no punk. I mean, he’s a dinosaur, so that’s something, and his goofiness has made him a fan favorite in some circles. Sparty is certainly no goofball. He’s all business, and the business is winning. Well it’s become a local tradition come spring for these two local entities to lock horns in the great American pastime of Baseball in the Crosstown Showdown. While Sparty is a big favorite to put a spank on Big Lug in a fight, who knows how they’d do in baseball? And as far as the Lansing Lugnuts versus the Michigan State University Baseball team, that’s some good competition! You’ve got Big Ten baseball versus Minor League AAA Toronto Blue Jay’s affiliate.

I like the match-up for some first-class pitching, hitting and fielding. The Crosstown Showdown is a really fun sign of spring and it has a fun, backyard brawl appeal. Tickets are on sale now, and when you’re talking about the Lugnuts, ticket prices is the GOOD news, not the BAD news. Ticket prices for Lugnut games remain an awesome value. As low as $8 for a lawn seat, $10 for a bleacher seat and if you’re a high-roller, just $22.50 to be up in the Clubhouse, where you are at the suite level and just steps from a full bar. Something to think about… No matter where you choose to sit, get to this fun game where local sports entities clash for springtime bragging rights. When Sparty plays Big Lug in baseball we all win because the friendly competition under the Spring sun is just plain fun.

When it comes to baseball, the Lugnuts are Lansing's best. These guys are ready to show some college kids what's up in the big leagues...
