HOME PLATE is an annual outreach event held at Comerica Park at which current and former members of the Detroit Tigers, along with other professional athletes, share about their careers as professional athletes and their faith in Jesus Christ. Due to Covid, this year’s event was cancelled. However, this event has happened every year since 1987! We’re not about to let it go. Here is a link to an archived recording of this year’s online event. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKnP9XTBPXU&feature=youtu.be We hope you will watch this so you can see how amazing it is. Then imagine it in person followed by an on-field clinic AND a Tigers game! It really is a fun and meaningful, family-friendly day. We hope it can return to an in-person event in 2021.
