Tigers vs Indians
Prior to the game against the Cleveland Indians, the Detroit Tigers will host Math Day, the third program in the Class Outside Series, presented by Oakland University. The Class Outside Series combines classroom curriculum with the game of baseball. The presentation will feature speakers from various professional backgrounds. Participating in the program will be Oakland University Graduate and Plante Moran Financial Advisor Joseph Wysocki, Pike-Delta-York Local School District Technology Coordinator Derek Friess, the Frog Force 503 Robotics Team and members of the Detroit Tigers Baseball Analytics Department.
G.R.E.A.T. Day: The Tigers were the first professional sports team to partner with the Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.) program, and have dedicated one game per season since 1992 to G.R.E.A.T. This year, 350 Detroit area middle school students who have graduated from or are currently receiving lessons will attend the game to celebrate their achievements in avoiding destructive behaviors. Through G.R.E.A.T., students work with law enforcement agencies and educators to learn the importance of becoming responsible members of their communities by setting goals, resisting peer pressures, learning how to resolve conflicts and understanding how gangs negatively impact the quality of their life. G.R.E.A.T. has reached well over 80,000 Michigan youth since its inception in 1992.
The first pitch will be thrown by Detroit Field Division Special Agent in Charge James Deir, representing the G.R.E.A.T. program.
The national anthem will be signed by the Ann Arbor Skyline ASL Eagles.
