DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – Here’s your chance to hit a home run at Comerica Park.

The Detroit Tigers are holding two fantasy batting practice events this Friday and Sunday where you’ll have a chance to practice like the pros and hit off former Tigers and World Series pitcher Dave Rozema.

Each fantasy batting practice session includes batting practice with Rozema, shagging fly balls in the outfield, playing catch, hitting in the batting cages and spending time in the dugout. Plus, your family and friends are invited to watch from the stands.
