Detroit Three find hope in centerfield

Detroit Three find hope in centerfield : "'I thought for a few weeks before deciding,' Ilitch admitted. 'I didn't want to offend anybody. I didn't want to put off the foreign carmakers. And I didn't want people to think we couldn't sell the fountain. As a businessman, you do worry about those things.

'But I finally said, 'The heck with it.' I want to do something to help.'

So starting with the home opener this Friday afternoon, the Chrysler, General Motors and Ford logos will be on an equal plane above the fountain. And beneath those logos will be a few new words:

'The Detroit Tigers support our automakers.'"
