Tigers players Nick Castellanos, Bryan Holaday and J.D. Martinez will visit the Detroit Tigers Dominican Academy, home of the club's Dominican Summer League team and fall instructional program, to meet children and staff from Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, an organization that cares for orphaned and abandoned children in Latin America and the Caribbean. The event will take place at 10:00 a.m. UTC (9:00 a.m. ET) on Tuesday, December 2 at the Tigers Dominican Academy.
During their trip to the academy, the players will meet with the academy leadership and take a tour of the club's facility. Following the tour, the players, in collaboration with the Detroit Tigers Foundation, an affiliate of Ilitch Charities, and Tom Moore director of international operations for the Detroit Tigers, will present the children from the Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos orphanage with more than 500 pieces of baseball equipment and 100 t-shirts to support their youth baseball program.
In addition, Fathead will donate hundreds of wall decals and graphics for the children to decorate the orphanage.
