Today would’ve marked Opening Day at Comerica Park, the home of our Detroit Tigers. Our team formed a strong relationship with their team in 2019, when we announced a multi-year sponsorship that included branding the right field bar inside the stadium. The Coppercraft Bar is still inside Comerica Park, but the players, the coaches, and the fans are not… and may not be for the foreseeable future. How can we help you cope with cabin fever and sports deprivation? How about a film triple-header, featuring some of our favorite baseball films and accompanying cocktails?
Moneyball, featuring “Moneyball”
The story of an eccentric manager who turns the atrocious Oakland Athletics into a numerical anomaly. The film features a star-studded cast including both Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill. Oddly enough, it was Mr. Hill, not Mr. Pitt, who hit a homerun with his performance and walked off with an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
