Verlander Book Signing at Gardner-White in Canton July 27th


An odd set off coincidences has led Gardner-White to host a book signing with Justin Verlander’s parents!

Friday, July 27th – 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Gardner-White, 39453 Ford Rd., Canton, MI 48187


Gardner-White has been a long-standing sponsor of the Detroit Tigers. In particular, Gardner-White sponsors “Kids Take the Field” – where 11 lucky kids (ages 7-14) are chosen for each Sunday home game to go on the field before the game and meet a Tiger. You can enter your kid by visiting any Gardner-White store.

Well, last season, one lucky customer was able to take her 2 sons to the game. Not only was it a great experience for Dallas and Drew, but Dallas just so happened to be on the pitcher’s mound to meet Justin Verlander. As they stood on the mound an Associated Press photographer snapped a photo of them bumping knuckles.

This AP Photo has since found it’s way on to the cover of Richard and Kathy Verlander’s book “Rocks Across the Pond.”

Gardner-White is pleased to support the mission of the Verlanders by hosting a book signing at our Canton location on Friday, July 27th from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. We will be giving away books ($29.95 value) to the first 200 people. The Verlanders will be on hand, as well as cover photo star Dallas!
