Cabrera raises $200,000 for youth programs

DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera helped raise more than $200,000 for youth baseball and children's health programs through the Detroit Tigers Foundation, the Miguel Cabrera Foundation and area children's hospitals thanks to the fourth annual Keeping Kids in the Game event at Comerica Park, held on Monday night.

The event, started by former Tigers Carlos Guillen and Brandon Inge, began as a way to raise money by hosting fans for an evening at the ballpark. Cabrera has picked up the cause over the past couple of years.

Proceeds from the event go to support programs facilitated by the Children's Hospital of Michigan as well as the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. As part of the event, nearly 200 patients from the two hospitals were treated to a night at the ballpark.
