The Flying Tigers will be hosting a dinner show featuring a professional Ty Cobb impersonator March 17-22 in the Dining Hall at Tiger Town. The dinner show titled, "Spend an Evening with Ty Cobb," will run for six nights. The price of each show is $25 per person. All proceeds earned will benefit the Detroit Tigers Foundation of Florida, which benefits local youth organizations and local charities.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. Dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m. and the performance will begin at 8 p.m. Guests will receive dinner served by a Detroit Tigers Minor League Baseball player, the opportunity to eat in the Detroit Tigers cafeteria, and a four act performance featuring Norm Coleman as Ty Cobb. The four acts will document Cobb's life, his relationship with Joe DiMaggio, and his time as a captain in the army during World War I.

Coleman has thrilled audiences throughout the West Coast as he has performed his one-man-show based on the legendary Ty Cobb. Finally, he is bringing his show to Tiger Town. The four act performance has been called, "entertaining, humorous, historical, splendid, and awesome."

Do not miss out on this opportunity to witness one of baseball's most controversial legends! Seating is limited. For further information or to reserve your seat, please call the Flying Tigers at (863) 686-8075.
