Event Details

The Lansing Lugnuts, High-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, and the Michigan State University Spartans will meet up at Jackson® Field™ on April 6, 2022, resuming the Crosstown Showdown after a two-year hiatus.

The Crosstown Showdown exhibition between the Lugnuts and Spartans began in 2007 as a celebration of baseball in Mid Michigan. From 2007-2019, the game was an enormous success, drawing over 100,000 total fans, averaging over 8,000 per game, airing on BTN in 2013, and bringing in the three largest crowds in stadium history, including a throng of 12,997 for the 2012 Showdown.
