Miguel Cabrera hosted his ninth annual 'Keeping Kids in the Game' event at Comerica Park Thursday evening.

The event sold out weeks in advance, but there was a special group of invite-only VIPs that got to experience something the ticket-holders didn't.

200 patients and family members from C.S. Motts Children's Hospital and Children's Hospital of Michigan were hosted by Miggy and the Detroit Tigers Foundation at the Brush Fire Grill at Comerica Park. 

They got to meet players, get autographs, eat a ballpark dinner and run around on the field.

Cabrera and the families alike call the event "emotional" and "special".
