Spring is just around the corner and with it comes baseball season. In the Lansing area, that means the Lansing Lugnuts, whose home games at Jackson Field are less than a half hour from The English Inn Restaurant & Pub!
There’s nothing quite like attending a baseball game. The sun on the stands, the cheering and jeering fans, a hot dog and a drink, and all the action on the field. Does it get any better?
The Lansing Lugnuts are a Minor League Baseball team of the High-A Central and the Oakland Athletics’ Class A Midwest League affiliate. The team has won two Midwest League championships and hosted four Midwest League All-Star Games. The Lugnuts have produced 156 Major League players over the years, with more than 20 former Lugnuts currently active in the Majors. The Lugnuts regularly draw 300,000 fans a season and hold the MiLB attendance record for a club’s inaugural season.
Better yet, the convenient location of our Lansing area bed and breakfast makes catching one of the Lugnuts’ home games a snap. The English Inn is just a half hour from the capital city in Eaton Rapids, MI. This means you can have all the noise and adventure you want but still have somewhere quiet and serene to retire to. The perfect combination!
