Hope In The City Luncheon Featuring Tiger’s Legend Willie Horton
November 19, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
The Salvation Army of Windsor’s 4th annual Hope In The City Luncheon, featuring special guest Detroit Tiger’s legend Willie Horton, takes place at the Caboto Club on Monday, November 19, 2018.
In partnership with the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918), this luncheon event provides an opportunity for attendees to network with like-minded community and business leaders, to learn about the support opportunities available and how they can collaborate with The Salvation Army in bringing vital services to people in need in Windsor and area.
The event’s special guest speaker is Detroit Tigers Legend, Willie Horton.
The fourth person in Detroit history to be given their own day, Willie Horton was a legend to the city both on and off the field throughout his fourteen seasons with the Detroit Tigers.
A few seasons after being drafted by the club, Horton put together an impressive rookie campaign and made his first of four All-Star Game appearances. Horton posted double-digit home run totals in 12 regular seasons, with career high 36 home runs in 1968, the year in which the Tigers would defeat the St. Louis Cardinals for a World Series title.
Following his tenure with the Tigers, Horton spent a combined three seasons with various clubs, most notably with the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners, before retiring in 1980. Since his retirement, Horton remained close to the game, managing the Navegants del Magallanes of Venezuela, whom he would guide to the Caribbean Series title, and holding various coaching roles with the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox. He has remained a prominent figure of the Detroit Tigers organization, with his number #23 retired by the club and a Special Assistant to the President and General Manager role, which he currently holds today.
