Opening Day Festivities

If you’re lucky enough to be heading down for Detroit’s big party, Opening Day, here is some information on the on field pregame happenings.

The National Anthem will be sung by American Idol finalist Matt Giraud and Ken Casey will sing God Bless America at the seventh inning stretch. We here at DTW are partial to the vocal stylings of Miss Amber Grand, but what are you going to do?

Tim Allen will throw the first pitch(es) to service men and women from each of the branches of the military. There will be a flyover (yes!) of 4 F-15c’s from Tyndall Air Force Base.

The weather looks to be dry, but chilly. A high around 50 is tolerable though for an early April game. If you’re still looking for tickets, they are going for about $100 on StubHub (aff link) as of press time.

I hope you can make it down. You’ll likely find me at Casey’s and/or The Park Bar prior to the game.
