Fans can take their guns out the ballgame in Michigan on Friday


BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — Baseball fans are being encouraged to bring their guns to a Michigan ballpark as part of a promotional event.

“2nd Amendment Education Night” is Friday at C.O. Brown Stadium when the Battle Creek Bombers host the Rochester (Minnesota) Honkers.

Bombers General Manager Tony Iovieno tells the Battle Creek Enquirer that plans for the event have been in the works since at least October as a way to promote gun safety and to showcase Freedom Firearms, the area business that’s sponsoring the event.

Iovieno tells WOOD-TV extra security is planned. He says those with guns will get a wristband and won’t be allowed to purchase alcohol.

The Bombers will provide free trigger locks to fans. The team is part of the Northwoods League, a summer league made up of college players.
