COMSTOCK PARK, Mich.— The West Michigan Whitecaps will continue to welcome Tigers in training through the 2020 season.
The two teams announced a two-year extension of Detroit’s player development contract Tuesday. Tigers Director of Minor League Operations Dan Lunetta says he is delighted with the decision, which was easy to make.
“This all takes place because of several factors; first, our tremendous relationship with the Whitecaps ownership and front office; second, their continued commitment to providing a first class operation and an excellent environment for our players to develop; and third, wonderful and strong support from the community. It is a natural tie for the Tigers and Whitecaps to maintain a long-term commitment to one another and we are proud to continue our affiliation with the Whitecaps,” Lunetta said.
