Fascinating fact:

Rocker Jack White returned to his native Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday (29Jul14) for a bizarre baseball moment before the home town Tigers’ clash with the Chicago White Sox at Comerica Park. The former White Stripes star threw out the ceremonial first pitch to a catcher dressed up as Santa Claus. The rocker was also joined on the field by Detroit’s tiger mascot, who was also dressed up as Father Christmas. No reason was given for the oddball baseball stunt.
