Detroit Tigers Fantasy Camp / Shot Heard Round Detroit 2of2

July 1, 2011

For a few years, I attended some great baseball fantasy camps in Detroit played at Tiger Stadium and Comerica Park. In 2004 I attended a week long camp in Lakeland Florida. The camps are organized by the Tigers and feature former players to make it even more fun. The camps are a blast. My friends were always asking me to show them the videos and photos I shot so I made these video recaps. Part 1 features clips of the weekend camps at Tiger Stadium and Comerica Park plus the week long camp in Florida. It should give you a good idea of what your get to do at the camps. Part 2 is a “documentary” of a now famous homerum that I hit (or didn’t hit) at Tiger Stadium. I was able to interview several former Tiger alumni and have them recap the “Shot Heard Round’ Detroit”. Interviews include: Lance Parrish, Ernie Harwell, Kirk Gibson, Bill Freehan, George Kell, Jim Price, Dave Bergman, Steve Kemp, Mickey Lolich, John Wockenfuss, Dave Rozema, Frank Howard, Milt Wilcox, Dan Petry, Jon Warden, Tom Brookens, John Hiller, Jason Thompson, Rod Allen, Jim Northrup, Willie Horton, Darrel Evens, Frank Tanana and capped off with Tigers President and GM Dave Dombrowski offering me a contract. If you’re a fan, you’ll enjoy it. At least I hope you will.

The Detroit Tigers had their first full squad workout for spring training on Tuesday, February 17, 2009. After a disappointing 2008 the team hopes a new attitude and work ethic will turn things around.
