Tigers Announce ‘Go To Bat Against Breast Cancer’ Ticket Sale

The 'Pink Out The Park' game will be July 19 against Toronto

July 12, 2019 - 2:55 pm

The Detroit Tigers will be hosting their Eighth Annual ‘Pink Out the Park’ game Friday, July 19, and will be offering special ticket prices, including $15 for lower bowl. The ticket sale starts today, July 12, and will run through July 18.

The ‘Pink Out the Park’ game allows fans, players and coaches to come together and raise money and awareness to a disease that has had an impact on almost every Detroiter. 

A portion of every $15 ticket sold will be donated to Karmanos Cancer Institution, the largest cancer care and researcher in the state. A partner with McLaren, Karmanos is headquartered in Detroit and has 15 locations in Michigan. With help from Wayne State University School of Medicine, Karmanos is focused to prevent, detect and treat as well as eradicate all forms of cancer. 

The game will feature plenty of activations before, during and after the game. The first 10,000 fans will be given a free ‘Pink Out the Park’ visor. The ceremonial first pitches will be done by cancer survivors. The National Anthem will be sung by Stephanie Samuel-Lucas, a six-time breast cancer survivor. 

Fans will also be able to pick up customizable cheer cards that will be spread out throughout the stadium. Fans can write the names of people in their lives affected by the disease. At the end of the fourth inning, there will be a moment of silence to honor all those individuals. 

Tigers catcher John Hicks will be serving as the club’s captain in honor of his mother, Karen Hicks, who has battled cancer herself. Annie Liddle, Tigers bench coach Steve Liddle’s wife, will be the teams honorary bat girl.
