Tigers' Max Scherzer, Teammates Ready For Fantasy Football In Motown Showdown

Despite the blockbuster trade that landed the Detroit Tigers a highly coveted starting pitcher in David Price, football will be the main interest two weeks from now during Max Scherzer's Motown Showdown charity event.

Fans have the opportunity to compete in a fantasy football draft with select Tigers players. Money raised will help support local charities. A $3,000 "participant level" contribution will earn you a table spot at Draft Day and a baseball player chosen through a lottery system.

Those who are much more determined to select their Tiger can throw in an extra $2,000 and pick who they want on their team, subject to availability. Money raised from Scherzer’s “Motown Showdown” will benefit the Detroit Police Athletic League, the Detroit Zoo and the Detroit Tigers Foundation.

Players who are scheduled to participate are:

  • Max Scherzer
  • Alex Avila
  • Bryan Holaday
  • Don Kelly
  • Ian Kinsler
  • Joba Chamberlain
  • Joe Nathan
  • Justin Verlander
  • Miguel Cabrera
  • Rick Porcello
  • Torii Hunter
