Comerica Bank is offering its Grand Slam Grant for the fourth consecutive year. Two $10,000 grants are available for high school baseball or softball teams to create, expand or improve their programs. Grants will be awarded to one high school from Southeast Michigan, and another in the Central/West Michigan region.
On-Field Recognition at Comerica Park
The grant recipients will be recognized on the field prior to the game on April 5th against the Baltimore Orioles during the Detroit Tigers 2014 opening weekend. In addition to the grant, each winning school will also receive tickets to the opening weekend game.
Public high schools in Comerica’s markets of Southeast Michigan and Central and West Michigan are eligible to apply for the Grand Slam Grant. One grant recipient will be chosen from each of the two regions. The funds can be used for field improvements, equipment, training camps, or other baseball or softball-related expenses.
Grant applications will be reviewed for a variety of criteria including overall need, creativity, and school and community impact. The grant recipient will be selected by the Comerica Bank Grand Slam Grant Selection Committee, consisting of representatives from Comerica Bank and the Detroit Tigers.
