It's kind of a meet-and-great, from what I can gather. At Toledo, they have all sorts of activities...you can even audition to sing the SSB at a Mudhens game!

nobody will be. It sucks, especially since we pay $80 for nothing but a Q&A session.

Tigers' Ordonez won't attend Caps banquet
Posted by The Grand Rapids Press January 11, 2008 12:31PM
Categories: Sports

Detroit Tigers outfielder Magglio Ordonez will not be attending the 2008 West Michigan Whitecaps winter banquet Sunday.

Ordonez, the 2007 American League batting champion who was supposed to be a part of the Tigers' caravan stop in Grand Rapids, has a prior engagement in Detroit.

All-Star shortstop Carlos Guillen and president and CEO Dave Dombrowski still are scheduled to attend the sold-out event at DeVos Place.

They should sign a few autographs. Bunch of BS rant At least for the Kids. It is all business.

On the other hand, Why sign free autographs when Tigers players, like Verlander, can appear at a card show or at Fanatic U and charge 75 bucks a shot!
