Lansing Parks and Recreation summer program participants parade around Cooley Law School Stadium during the 16th annual Cooley for Kids day.

COOLEY FOR KIDS Baseball Fun For Area Kids and WMU-Cooley Law Students Hundreds of Lansing Parks and Recreation kids got to take in a Lansing Lugnuts baseball game, a free lunch, and plenty of fun activities during this year’s annual Cooley for Kids Day at Cooley Law School Stadium. The festivities started with the kids parading around the ball field carrying their colorful student-made banners. Then the Dream Team kid winners were announced and each of them got to run out with their paired up ball player onto the field. WMU-Cooley law students joined in by throwing out a first pitch and the singing of the national anthem. “Cooley for Kids Day is always a fun and gratifying event,” declared Terry Carella, WMU-Cooley’s communications director. “We are proud of our 16-year partnership with Lansing Parks and Recreation and we look forward to seeing the kids enjoy this event every year.”
