    Katie-My husband and I are “old school “, and appreciate how you and Jim put family first. The in which Jim conducts his business with the Tiger a d his Family is exemplary. Jim is very fortunate and blessed to have a wife who could allow him to follow his passion while the home family going. May the Lord continue to bless you and your “Two Families”.

    I grew up in Ft Wayne IN in 60’s catching Tiger baseball on radio. I finally moved to Detroit in 76 and I was able to see Fidyrch pitch with Sparky at the helm. Those were the days. I moved to CA in 80’s and run into Sparky in Thousand Oaks.
    what great man. I am now back in IN and am still huge Tiger fan. I am in my fifties and still die hard fan. Jim and Sparky are my true heroes.
    I would love to see Jim win the big one. If St. Louis meets Detroit we will try to go to see them in St. Louis. GO TIGERS GO JIM!!!

    God bless!

    Katie, Now it’s time to enjoy Jim more we had him for a long time and enjoyed him being the manager of the Tigers. Now you two can have fun with you’re retirement and have a good time with each other, go on trips and probably see lots of baseball games! Best of luck, you have a good egg!!
