MotorCity Casino, one of Detroit’s premier entertainment venues, will play host to the16th annual Detroit Baseball Dinner, which will take place on Saturday, January 21, 2017 in the casino’s elegant 16th floor Amnesia Room. The event will begin at 6:00 pm with cocktails and appetizers, followed by dinner, special guests, and a lively and insightful program put together by Lynn Henning and the gang that baseball fans won’t want to miss.

One of the evening’s highlights will be the presentation of the Bill MacAdam Tenth Man Award, which is given each year to a utility player who makes contributions to the team that far exceed his position. We are pleased to announce that this year’s Tenth Man Award winner is Andrew Romine, who will be at the dinner to receive his award and talk about his versatile role.

Tigers General Manager Al Avila is expected to be this year’s keynote speaker and will discuss changes the Tigers will have made ahead of the 2017 season. A typically full Tigers contingent will join Avila for a dinner that annually falls on the night of TigerFest and serves as a ribbon-cutting for 2017. Author Dave Chilton, another familiar face to dinner attendees, will be on hand to regale the audience with his mix of entertainment, wit, and baseball scholarship.

The fee for the event is $150 per person, including a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres.
