Comedian George Lopez meets Detroit Tigers

Comedian George Lopez sensed the camaraderie of a champion when he met with the World Series-bound Detroit Tigers Saturday.

Comedian George Lopez met with the World Series-bound Detroit Tigers Saturday before he was slated to perform in the city later that night.

Lopez, who is from Los Angeles, recognizes the impact a team can have on a city. Lopez is a baseball fan, and in one meeting with the Tigers, he sensed a team morale and camaraderie similar to what he sensed when he visited the 2005 World Series Champion Chicago White Sox, according to Rod Beard of the Detroit News.

"I was around the White Sox when they won in '05 because I was doing my show and threw out the first pitch," Lopez said. "I went in the clubhouse and they had an energy of togetherness. You could sense that they were different than any team I had seen...this team has that feeling.

Lopez also made time out of his visit to speak to Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera. Lopez, like Cabrera, is Latino and celebrated the achievements Cabrera has made for the Latino community and the game of baseball.

The Detroit Tigers will face either the St. Louis Cardinals or San Francisco Giants Wednesday, Oct. 24 to kick-off the 2012 World Series.
