Here at S.A.Y. Play we want to encourage our students to look for role models and to follow their examples. When trying to decide who to dedicate our baseball fields to, one name stood out above the rest: Detroit’s own Judge Damon J. Keith. We are so proud to have Judge Damon J. Keith’s name on our campus. His influence, dedication and commitment to the law sets an exceptional example for our students.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for the city of Detroit and for our country’s judicial system.
We were also honored to have Detroit Tigers Foundation Director Jordan Field, Doug Kuiper the VP of Corporate Communications for Ilitch Holdings, Charlie Beckham from the Department of Neighborhoods, and Legendary Detroit Tigers Left Fielder Willie Horton joining us on the field.
Our baseball field would not have been possible if it weren’t for generosity and hard work of the Detroit Tigers Foundation and the Baseball Tomorrow Fund. We strive to give our students opportunities that every child should have and thanks to these foundations we can introduce our students to new sports, sportsmanship and teamwork.
