PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Baseball season is around the corner, and that means the West Michigan Whitecaps are searching for Fifth Third Ballpark’s next all-star food menu item.

Fans can submit menu ideas starting Monday and running through Jan. 27 on the Whitecaps’ website. Photos can also be sent to playball@whitecapsbaseball.com.

The public will be able to vote on a select list of items beginning Feb. 23. The winner will be available for purchase starting April 6 at the Whitecaps’ home opener, a Whitecaps release said.

This is the eighth year the Whitecaps are taking submissions for Fifth Third Ballpark’s summer menu. In 2016, fans chose Dutch Love as the winner — which included pot roast, cheese curds, french fries and turkey gravy wrapped up in a pita. In 2015, it was the Hot-To-Tot — a concoction of buffalo chicken, bleu cheese and tater tots.
