Tigers welcome LLWS champs to Comerica

Detroit Tigers

DETROIT — Two days after Taylor North won the Little League World Series, the team got a day in the big leagues, taking the field at Comerica Park while the Tigers took batting practice on Tuesday.

One player after another walked over with congratulations and autographs, from new 500-homer member Miguel Cabrera to former LLWS champ Jonathan Schoop. A’s infielder and former Tiger Josh Harrison walked over as well.

Taylor North players and coaches were back on the field shortly before the game against the A’s for a ceremony honoring their championship. After they were all introduced, players and manager A.J. Hinch presented them with Tigers jerseys and took photos with them.

“We’ve talked about earning things around here, and they earned every bit of our love and appreciation,” Hinch said. “Those games were on in our clubhouse and people were talking about it. A team from Michigan beats a team from Ohio; that matters around here. Just a really, really cool opportunity for us to give back something to a group of kids that love the game, and it brought a lot of special memories to a lot of people.”
