Michigan Matters Exclusive! President Barack Obama is coming to the Motor City for a $1 million pizza party being thrown for him compliments of Denise Ilitch, daughter of Little Caesars’ founders Mike and Marian Ilitch.
Ilitch discussed whether he was willing to fight to have the actual game at Comerica, what he thinks he means to the legacy of Red Wings hockey and the No. 1 thing he has learned about sports throughout his years being an owner.
Thursday afternoon was the official welcoming party at Comerica Park for the Tigers newest free agent, Prince Fielder.
Calling him, “one of the best hitters in the game of baseball today,” Tigers’ general manager Dave Dombrowski introduced Fielder to a packed house of media at Comerica Park.
