Mott Children's Hospital will honor Detroit Tigers third baseman Brandon Inge
C.S. Mott Children's Hopsital will honor Tigers third baseman Brandon Inge and his wife, Shani, next Wednesday, for their recent naming donation at the university hospital.
The event, open to parents and children at the hospital, will start with a parade in the hospital's courtyard at 11:30 a.m., and feature hot dogs, caramel corn, a visit from the Detroit Tigers' mascot and more.
The Inges, who live in Dexter, are regular visitors at the hospital and recently gave $100,000 to name a playroom "The Dugout" for children receiving cancer treatments at the new Mott. They also support a fund for parents and children who face financial hardships while receiving treatment at Mott.
