Calaveras de West Michigan(3 items)
West Michigan sought to tap into the familial traditions surrounding Día de los Muertos, given the team's commitment to supporting family bonding. The "Calaveras" moniker, which translates to skulls, pays homage to the holiday while providing subtle tie-backs to the team's full-time brand, including Lake Michigan's waves, the team's area code and other baseball-themed elements.
The Whitecaps played as las Calaveras for three games during each of the 2019, 2021 and 2022 seasons to celebrate the Latino/Hispanic culture and the influence it has had on America's pastime. Las Calaveras will be returning on June 10, 2023; July 30, 2023 and September 8, 2023.
