Tribute to Burt

Rev up your Trans Am and start growing out your mustache, a Tribute to Burt Reynolds is coming.

The Lansing Lugnuts will hold a special night to honor the late actor Burt Reynolds.  Reynolds was born in Lansing and moved to the South when he was five. A special bobblehead will be given to the first 1000 fans and the team will wear custom jersey with a large Trans AM logo on the front.

The team has in-game plans too with each inning to have the theme of a movie Reynolds starred in.  “There’s a few movies we’ll obviously stay away from,” Team GM Tyler Parsons notes  “There’s not going to be a ‘Boogie Nights’ theme or anything like that” referencing the more cult classic about the porn industry.

The team is planning music for the night as well, including likely a banjo player to greets fans as they enter.
