Cooley Law School Stadium is a baseball stadium in Lansing, Michigan, home field of the Lansing Lugnuts minor league baseball team. The Michigan State Spartans college baseball team also plays select home games at Cooley Law School Stadium. The stadium is situated in downtown Lansing in the Stadium District on a relatively narrow strip of land between and below Larch and Cedar streets.It is primarily used for baseball, though it has also hosted an ice skating rink, an outdoor movie theater, a haunted house, and served as a concert venue for the annual Common Ground Music Festival. Due to the dimensions of the city block in which the stadium was constructed, the right and left field fences 'notch' sharply into distances of at each foul pole.HistoryThe stadium replaced a block of storefronts along Michigan Avenue. Originally budgeted $10 million for construction, the construction costs rose slightly to $12.8 million.Groundbreaking for the stadium took place on April 3, 1995, and it was officially opened exactly one year later on April 3, 1996. Its first game was between the college baseball teams of the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. Two days later, the Lansing Lugnuts had their first game at the venue against the Rockford Cubbies.

  • This is a great place for a inexpensive family outing! Close to home and always a great time. The only thing I would improve on is the quality of the hot dogs. Not sure where they get them but they could do better.
  • Fantastic family place to experience!!The games are wonderful, entertainment is awesome especially appreciated are the fireworks AND the most fantastic of all is the Fourth of July celebration honoring our military!! Very, very moving! Would encourage everyone to participate next year
  • Always a great time at the Lugnut games. Location Downtown is perfect. Surrounded by so many great restaurants and bars. Just a walk away from the capital building. One of these days am gonna rent one of those suites or apartments and watch the game in style.
  • Very nice minor league stadium. They've made quite a few improvments recently. Comfortable seating and good amenities. This is a family oriented establishment. There is no onsite parking but its a short walk to mearby lots. Go Lugnutz!
  • A fun experience. Decent food & drinks. When they have fireworks after the game they're great. Not a lot of songs/funny noises and interaction like most other team's/stadiums.
