DETROIT A man well-known among Detroit Tigers fans is being buried in a team logo casket.
MLive.com and the Detroit Free Press report the funeral for James Van Horn was Friday. He wore a Tigers baseball cap inside the casket.
He and another Comerica Park fixture died last weekend in a hit-and-run crash on the city's east side.
Van Horn and Michael Alston were killed about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Their bodies were found in the roadway. The driver left the scene and has not been identified.
The 66-year-old Van Horn would chant "Eat 'em up, Tigers" and collect spare change from baseball fans.
The 55-year-old Alston was known as "Dreadlock Mike" because of his hair. He moved around downtown in a wheelchair. Alston's funeral is Saturday.
