Miguel Cabrera to host fifth annual Keeping Kids in the Game on Monday, August 19

Detroit Tigers Foundation's signature fundraiser to be held Monday, August 19th at Comerica Park

Detroit Tigers All-Star slugger Miguel Cabrera will host the fifth annual Keeping Kids in the Game event, presented by Lear Corporation on Monday, August 19 at Comerica Park. Proceeds from the sold out event support children's health and youth baseball programs facilitated by the Children's Hospital of Michigan Foundation, the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, the Detroit Tigers Foundation, an affiliate of Ilitch Charities and the Miguel Cabrera Foundation.

The Detroit Tigers Foundation's signature fundraising event features exclusive ballpark and field access, including self-guided tours of the home clubhouse, a dugout photo station and a private fireworks show. Guests at the event will also be treated to live entertainment, extraordinary auction items and a strolling dinner along with beverages and cigars in the Tiger Club.

While patrons and guests are enjoying the Tiger Club, the Detroit Tigers will host nearly 200 patients and family members from Children's Hospital of Michigan and C.S. Mott Children's Hospital at Comerica Park for a special night under the lights at the ballpark. The children and their families will enjoy dinner in the Brushfire Grill, have access to the playing field, dugouts and clubhouse, as well as enjoy face painters, balloon and temporary tattoo artists, go for rides on the Fly Ball Ferris Wheel and meet special guests-including Tigers mascot PAWS and members of the 2013 Detroit Tigers. The children are invited through the respective Hospital Child Life Departments and are sponsored by Tigers players.
