Connecticut Tigers donate to Norwich food pantry

Norwich - The Connecticut Tigers recently made a donation to the Mayor’s Food Pantry totaling $5,420 from parking revenue collected at the Thomas J. Dodd Memorial Stadium.

The Tigers donate a portion of the $2 parking fee from Connecticut Tigers minor league baseball games to the food pantry each year.

“It’s vitally important for the Tigers to be an active member of our community,” Tigers General Manager CJ Knudsen said. “Norwich does so much for us and this is a great way for us to give back.”

The Connecticut Tigers are the New York-Penn League affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. The 2013 season opens June 17 against the Lowell Spinners, affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. For information, call the Tigers at (860) 887-7962 or go to www.cttigers.com.
