Baseball in January? Yes, for a group of lucky Detroit Tigers Fantasy Camp participants, past Tigers players, and local fans. The Detroit Tigers will host their annual fantasy camp game tomorrow, January 21st, at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland. The game begins at 10:00 a.m. and admission is free, but a suggested donation of $2.00 will be collected for the Detroit Tigers Foundation of Florida, which benefits local youth sports organizations and local charities.
The fantasy camp participants have been in town since Sunday, participating in clinics, batting practices and games. After spending the week training alongside Tigers greats, the campers will have the opportunity to showcase their talent and passion for the game on the field. Participants scheduled to appear include: Willie Horton, Alan Trammell, Mickey Lolich, Frank Tanana, Larry Herndon, Jon Warden, Jim Price and more.
The Tigers will begin their exhibition schedule on Friday, March 2nd as the club plays host to Florida Southern College in the annual matchup against the Moccasins. Detroit Tigers Spring Training games are currently on sale. Tickets can be purchased at the Joker Marchant Stadium Box office, online through the Detroit Tigers website at www.Tigers.com, or by phone at (866) 66-TIGER (84437).
