At Joker Marchant this Saturday, the Detroit Tigers will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their 1984 World Series win. Tigers greats such as Darrell Evans, Mike Heath, Guillermo Hernandez, Willie Horton will face the 26th Tigers Fantasy Camp team in an exhibition for bragging rights and charity.
Players from the 1984 Tigers team have trained the fantasy camp players for two weeks. They’ll see how well they’ve coached the amateurs when the players take on the campers at 10:00 am January 31, at Joker Marchant. Fans are encouraged to come watch the game. Admission is free, but everyone is encouraged to donate $2 to help support the Detroit Tigers Foundation of Florida. The group benefits local youth organizations and local charities.
