I know we have a lot of minor league fans and people in the West Michigan area, so here's something you might want to take advantage of.
The Tigers' Class-A affiliate Whitecaps will be hosting a practice open to the public for free Wednesday at Fifth Third Field. The gates open at 5 p.m. and the workout is scheduled for 6-7 p.m. Afterward, players will be available for fans to get autographs from.
You just might have a chance to get the signature of one of the TIgers' top prospects, Jacob Turner. Wade Gaynor, the Tigers' third-round draft pick last season, is also going to be in West Michigan this year, as will former Michigan State catcher Eric Roof.
Tigers fans are really quite spoiled, with two of the team's affiliates playing in such close proximity. So take advantage of it ... and report back to us!
