When the Lansing Lugnuts face the Fort Wayne TinCaps on August 18th at Cooley Law School Stadium, the Lugnuts will be known under a different name...at least for one night.

The Lugnuts will be known as the Lansing Mighty Wombats, after that name won an online vote in honor of the video game series "Backyard Baseball".

According to a release, It will be Backyard Baseball Night at the ballpark on the 18th.  The team will be giving away bobbleheads of the BB character Pablo Sanchez to the first 1,000 patrons through the gates.  You can call 517-485-4500 or go to lansinglugnuts.com for ticket and other information regarding this upcoming event.
