Home Plate 2007

For the 21st consecutive year, SCORE Ministries and Baseball Chapel for the Detroit Tigers hosted an exciting outreach event called HOME PLATE on Saturday, April 28
The program included an autographed baseball give-away, souvenirs, and most importantly, the sharing of salvation in Jesus Christ through the personal testimonies of several professional athletes.
Program participants included: Detroit Tiger pitchers Mike Maroth, Todd Jones, Jason Grilli, and Nate Robertson, Tiger outfielder Marcus Thames, Tiger first baseman Sean Casey, Tiger coach Andy Van Slyke, Tiger broadcasters Rod Allen, and former Detroit Tiger Frank Tanana. Each person clearly explained when he trusted Christ and shared Scripture as part of his testimony. To close out the program, former Detroit Tiger pitcher Frank Tanana boldly and compassionately shared Gods plan of salvation.

8,020 people representing 258 groups from Michigan, Ohio, Ontario, and Pennsylvania participated in HOME PLATE 2007.

134 people indicated making a decision to receive Jesus Christ as Savior (62 adults, 44 teens, 28 children).

1,320 people indicated making a decision to renew their dedication to live for Christ (820 adults, 340 teens, 160 children).
