Willie Horton's 14th Annual Batting for Kids took place at Comerica Park on Friday, July 24th, 2015. We had an impressive turnout of over 500 children who came with local community groups, sports teams, or as individuals. At the event, the kids competed in three different baseball skills challenges; batting, base running and pitching. Each boy and girl had a chance to vie for a winning spot in their age and gender group to come back to the park for a Tigers game on September 22, 2015 against the Chicago White Sox. We had 51 winners in all and are looking forward to welcoming these kids and their families for a special pre-game ceremony. The children who participated had a great time and the event served as an excellent fundraiser for Don Bosco Hall.
