Baseball “Night Of Champions” At YMCA

A benefit for the local YMCA Friday night at McMorran Place saw some 60-thousand dollars raised as area residents and sports fans got to visit with current and former members of the Detroit Tigers. Tiger Coach Jim Leyland got into a bidding war for his bench coach’s jersey and won the bid at $2,500 then turned around and gave the jersey to the gentleman he had outbid. The YMCA’s Denise Brooks says some 600 attended the event. Funds raised go towards a schoarlship program which provides financial assistance to those that can’t afford full membership at the facility.
