The inaugural autograph signing event will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at two locations:

"Signature Saturdays" will start this Saturday at M Den in downtown Detroit and Hockeytown Cafe.

►The M Den on the new Columbia Street Plaza off Woodward Avenue (between the Fox Theatre and Little Caesars Global Resource Center).

►Hockeytown Café.

Some 20 players and coaches are expected to participate.

Parking is $8 at three lots near the event — D Garage, 168 W. Columbia St. and 117 W. Columbia St.

The club is planning to host Signature Saturdays at Comerica Park prior to every Saturday home game this season.

On Thursday, fans will have another opportunity to intact with Tigers’ players at the annual Kids Rally, which takes place from 4:45-6 p.m. at Lake Shore High School in St. Clair Shores. The event is free.
