DETROIT – Detroit's Jack White is partnering with the Detroit Tigers for an exclusive Third Man Records vinyl record.

Here's the info from the Tigers:

Calling all lovers of vinyl records! Purchase this package and get a ticket to see the Tigers battle the Minnesota Twins on September 24 plus an exclusive Third Man Records 7" vinyl record.

One side of the record is the song "Strike Out" by "The Brushoffs" - a group featuring Third Man Records artists Brendan Benson, Ben Blackwell, Dominic Davis and Olivia Jean. On the other side, Third Man Records founder Jack White interviews 1984 World Series Champion Kirk Gibson. This record is pressed in the Tigers colors (blue and orange) specifically for this ticket package and will not be available anywhere else. The photos on the record sleeve were shot by Detroit Tigers pitcher, Daniel Norris.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Kirk Gibson Foundation and The Detroit Tigers Foundation.
