Detroit Tigers Baseball 2019 Spring Training

kidsPACK is Coming to Spring Training – and We Want You There!

If you’re a baseball fan, you’ll love our latest volunteer opportunity!

kidsPACK is honored to be selected to help out with the Detroit Tigers Baseball 2019 Spring Training. This is a valuable opportunity for our organization to raise money and awareness to help feed hungry kids in our community.

We’ll be providing volunteers for the kidsZone, so we’re looking for volunteers who are good with kids. If you’re over 16 years of age and are ready to work to make baseball games a fun family experience, we need your help!

If you’re passionate about helping kids but don’t know the first thing about baseball, here’s a quick rundown on how spring training works.

Spring training is the nickname for a series of practice games major league baseball teams play before the start of the regular season (which happens in early April). This period gives the teams a chance to warm up, and if needed, try out new players. Since spring training begins in February, teams typically head south for some more pleasant weather.

The Detroit Tigers are a major league baseball based in Detroit, Michigan. Every spring training they head down to Lakeland and take up residence at Joker Marchant Stadium. The Tigers consider our community their home away from home, and they’re passionate about giving back by supporting organizations such as kidsPACK.

Spring training is already in full swing. Volunteers are needed through the end of March. Specifically, we’re looking for volunteers from 11:30am to 4:00pm on March 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 9, 10, 14, 16, 17, 18, 21, 23, 24, and 25. You can view the full schedule below..
