BCBSM Chief Dan Loepp, Employees Take Part in Detroit Tigers Game-Day Festivities

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan President and CEO Daniel J. Loepp threw out the ceremonial first pitch and Blues employees pitched in on the grounds crew and by singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” as the Detroit Tigers took on the Cleveland Indians last week at Comerica Park.

The Tigers offered up nearly 3,000 tickets to Blue Cross to welcome employees who are moving to downtown Detroit. PAWS, the Tigers’ mascot, led employees on a walk to the park before the game from BCBSM’s Lafayette Boulevard headquarters.

Blues employees met Tigers announcers, put out the bases, exchanged lineup cards and announced the starting lineup. Nikki Thomas, a secretary in Corporate Communications and a vocalist in her free time, was nominated by her coworkers to sing the National Anthem.

Our thanks to the entire Detroit Tigers organization for a great night at the ballpark. (And in case you’re wondering, Detroit won the game 4-0. Go Tigers!)

    very good! Better than the celebrities who mess up the words! It’s not an easy song to do and its not a song one sings everyday to remember the words, but if you are going to get up there up front of hundreds of people you better know them!!!
