Veteran rocker and Motor City native Bob Seger will perform "America the Beautiful" before Game 1 of the series, with the Detroit Tigers playing the St. Louis Cardinals in a rematch of the 1968 championship.
"Who wouldn't do it?" Seger said of the opportunity -- and making no secret where his loyalties lie. "The Tigers have just captivated the city. I'm caught up in it, too. Every time I get a chance I watch 'em play.
"The way they're going, I wouldn't be surprised if its the Tigers (winning) in five (games)."
Seger kicks off a concert tour Nov. 8 in Grand Rapids, Mich. to promote "Face the Promise," his first album of all-new material in 11 years.
