DETROIT (WWJ)- Tigers slugger Delmon Young may not be back on the field any time soon. The team has placed him on the restricted list pending the results of a psychological evaluation.

On Friday Young allegedly assaulted a man in front of the team’s New York hotel – shouting an antisemetic slur at him and shoving him to the ground.

How much do the Tigers mean to Detroit?

It’s not just a matter of pride, it’s also a big boost for the local economy. Ilitch Holdings President Chris Ilitch says the Tigers have a $325 million economic impact during the regular season.

“You know the streets come alive when the Tigers are playing at home, and there’s a real buzz in the air. Larger crowds and more excitement of course equals a major economic win for the other businesses and restaurants and bars here in downtown Detroit,” said Ilitch.

The Tigers expect to draw more than three million fans to Comerica Park this season.
