Early next year, fans will have an opportunity
to say good-bye to former Detroit Tiger Curtis Granderson. Granderson will
host the third annual Celebrity Shootout at 3pm on Sunday, January 24,
2010 at Seaholm High School in Birmingham. Proceeds raised from the
event will go to help the Grand Kids Foundation. Tickets are $30 for adults, and $25 for students with a valid student ID. Purchase tickets at www.grandkidsfoundation.org.
In a statement released by Granderson, he said:
will also be an emotional event on a personal level, as it will be
somewhat of a goodbye from me to the fans and the city that have
supported me so strongly throughout my career so far. I hope that those
fans can pack the gym and also raise a lot of money for inner-city education in Michigan.”
It will be an emotional event for fans, too. In the beginning of
December, the popular center fielder for the Detroit Tigers was traded
to the New York Yankees as part of a three team deal.
