For this week’s installment of #TigersFanFridays, meet Benson Ramirez. This year, Benson went to his first #Tigers game during Spring Training in Lakeland, Florida. And this summer, he’ll get to attend his first game at Comerica Park.
Benson was born into a family of Tigers fans, so much so that his parents, Chelsea and Andrew, joked about naming him, Miguel Cabrera Ramirez. Chelsea grew up downriver, where she went to Tigers games as a kid while Andrew was raised on the west side of the state, becoming a fan in college.
The #Tigers have been a part of their lives since they went on a first date at Comerica Park, and they’ve rooted from their home in Florida since they moved down. Now they’re sharing that same interest with Benson. “Detroit sports always hold a dear place in our hearts,” Chelsea said. “We are moving back this summer to show Benson what true sports fans look like.”
