The Detroit Tigers have partnered with The Salvation Army for the 2nd annual “Christmas in July” at the 1:05 p.m. game vs. the Toronto Blue Jays, at Comerica Park in Detroit.
Comerica Park will be transformed into a winter wonderland in the heat of the summer. Fans will be greeted by the sounds of The Salvation Army’s famous brass bands and Red Kettle bell ringers at gates A, B, C and D. Hundreds of children with The Salvation Army’s day camps will also take to the field prior to the game in a festive “Prance Around the Park,” courtesy of the Tigers.
The event serves as a reminder that men, women and children of all ages are in need 365 days a year.
The Salvation Army band will also perform the Star-Spangled Banner, and Corp. Jason Hale, a paratrooper with the Michigan Air National Guard, will deliver the game ball to the pitcher’s mound. Corp. Hale is a planned giving specialist with The Salvation Army.
