For nearly 30 years Detroit baseball fans have debated the following question. Which World Championship team was better, the ’68 or ’84 Tigers?

That discussion will continue at the “Show-Down In Mo-Town,” when several stars from both squads will participate in a special evening of debate and storytelling on Dec. 4 at 6 p.m. at the MGM Grand Hotel in Detroit located at 1777 Third St.

The event will honor and benefit active duty soldiers, veterans, returning injured heroes, and the U.S. Military All-Star Baseball Team.

Those scheduled to participate from the ’68 Tigers include Al Kaline, Willie Horton, Denny McLain, Jon Warden, and Tom Matchick, while the ’84 squad will be represented by Lance Parrish, Darrell Evans, Dan Petry, and Dave Rozema.  Eli Zaret will MC the debate and storytelling. The event will include a cash bar at 6 PM, followed by a buffet dinner, raffles, and auction. 

Tickets are available to 350 people at $150 per person and include free autographs. To obtain tickets via credit card, PayPal, check, or cash, call 810-588-9106 or go to www.supportusmas.com.
