DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Police Athletic League will receive a $300,000 gift from the Detroit Tigers Foundation to support a new multi-sports youth complex and headquarters at the old Tiger Stadium site.

The grant will be presented Monday evening during an on-field, pregame ceremony before the Tigers play the Philadelphia Phillies at Comerica Park.

It is the largest single gift made by the foundation, an affiliate of Ilitch Charities and official charity of the Detroit Tigers. Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera, Alan Trammell and Phil Coke are among the current and former Tigers who took part in the fundraising effort for PAL’s Kids at the Corner Campaign.

A groundbreaking for the project was held in April. The youth complex will allow PAL to expand its programming to serve more children in the city.
