Before you know it, it'll be springtime in West Michigan again which means warmer weather, spring fashion and another season of Whitecaps baseball.

And before the new season begins, they want to make sure their menu is ready for their food-loving fans. Back for its ninth year, the Whitecaps are holding their Fan Food Contest.

Every year, people submit what they would like to see on the menu at Fifth Third Ballpark. Last year's winner was the Beercheese Poutine, which was also named the "Best New Food Item" in 2017 by Ballpark Digest. The ideas people come up with usually involve some interesting combinations, like the Declaration of Indigestion (combo of a footlong sausage and Philly Cheese Steak).

The submissions from the fans show their passion for interesting foods, and it just blows us away every year. - Whitecaps V.P.

If you think you have the next greatest idea when it comes to ballpark food... the Whitecaps want to hear it!

You have until January 31, 2018 to make your submission by:

Opening Day for the West Michigan Whitecaps' 25th season will be Thursday, April 5th.
