Detroit native Jack White threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Tigers’ series opener against the Chicago White Sox today (July 29) at Comerica Park.

Unlike his appearance in the stands at a recent Chicago Cubs game, White looked happy to be there and do the honors.

White’s appearance tied in nicely with the Comerica Park’s annual Christmas in July promotion. According to the Tigers, “This always-popular day features Christmas music, decorations and visits from Santa Claus and Santa PAWS!” The purchase of special ticket packages included donations to The Salvation Army of Michigan who are known for their volunteers in Santa costumes. It was indeed a White Christmas at Comerica Park.
