Baseball fans and ice cream lovers were invited to a downtown ice cream extravaganza today. The Hudsonville Summer Extravaganza celebrated the beginning of the summer and becoming the official ice cream of the Detroit Tigers at Campus Martius Park. Detroit Tigers catcher Alex Avila, Bree Worth, wife of Tigers infielder Danny Worth, and Bobbie Coke, wife of Tigers pitcher Phil Coke, joined the festivities by scooping and serving ice cream in exchange for donations to the Detroit Tigers Foundation. PAWS and the DTE Energy Squad were there to add to the fun and remind fans to send their favorite Tigers to the All-Star Game by going to tigers.com/vote.
The ladies absolutely loved “Girls Night Out” on Saturday June 16th hosted by the Detroit Tigers and the Somerset Collection CityLoft. The evening kicked off with a pregame runway show in the Big Cat Court featuring feminine fashions from Majestic modeled by DTE Energy Squad members. Women who purchased “Girls Night Out” ticket packages were invited to a private VIP Party after the game in the Tiger Club with a DJ, complimentary drinks & hors d’ouvres, facials provided by Bare Essentials & massages provided by Origins. Tigers pitchers Phil Coke and Joaquin Benoit made special appearances for photos and a meet and greet with the ladies as well. Those in attendance also received complimentary gift bags from Somerset Collection CityLoft which included a certificate for an overnight stay at MotorCity Casino Hotel. Girls Night Out was definitely a grand slam!
Tigers fans in Boston and Chicago had the opportunity to meetup prior to the team’s recent trips to Fenway Park and Wrigley Field
Over 100 Tigers fans in Boston attended the Tigers Tweetup at “Game On” near Fenway Park. Fans socialized and enjoyed prizes and giveaways including baseball caps, autographed Miguel Cabrera and Doug Fister photos, t-shirts and cheer cards. The Tweetup included both Wolverines and Spartans, and was organized by the U of M and MSU Alumni Associations of Boston.
In Chicago, a raucous, packed house at O’Malley’s got the “Let’s Go Tigers!” chants going early and enjoyed playing Tigers Twitter trivia in the shadow of Wrigley Field. The two hour event featured raffles for autographed items, T-shirts courtesy of Miller Lite and snapback caps courtesy of ’47 Brand.
Thank you to all of our tweeting Tigers fans that participated!
