Lansing's Hometown Utility supports its Hometown sports team. The BWL is a proud sponsor of the Lansing Lugnuts, Lansing's Class A professional baseball team. The Lugnuts play 70 home games each spring and summer in beautiful new Oldsmobile Park, located in the heart of downtown Lansing. Construction of the new ball park has been an important driver of downtown development, and each year the Lugnuts draws thousands of fans downtown to enjoy the fun and excitement of professional baseball entertainment.
Before every home game kids and adults collect free player autographs in the BWL-sponsored autograph area along the right field line. Special events during the baseball season include the BWL Hometown Power Night, when area softball teams send their best sluggers to compete in a home run derby.
