Tigers host Weather Day this Thursday at Comerica Park

Pre-game program features interactive demonstrations

Prior to Thursday's game vs. the Minnesota Twins at 1:08 p.m., over 1,300 students from local schools will participate in Weather Day, the third installment of the Tigers' annual "Class Outside Series." Students attending will learn about the science that impacts Michigan weather, as well as how it can affect Detroit Tigers baseball. The pre-game program will feature weather related demonstrations by experts from Toledo's Imagination Station and includes meteorologists from the FOX 2 Weather Authority.

Imagination Station, Toledo's hands-on science center on the downtown riverfront, provides a critical layer of science enrichment by serving as an educational partner for teachers, schools and parents. It's with a thoughtful blend of hundreds of hands-on exhibits, experiences, education and excitement that Imagination Station is inspiring future generations of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers in northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.

The Weather Day presentation is designed for elementary and middle school students. Tickets for Weather Day are still available for purchase and include early entry into Comerica Park for Thursday's educational event. Comerica Park Gate D will open at 10:00 a.m. and will close at 10:40 a.m. and the workshop will start promptly at 10:45 a.m. and last until 11:30 a.m. To purchase a ticket for Career Day, please go to tigers.com/classoutside.
