Four Tops to sing anthem before Game 3 of ALCS

DETROIT (AP) — Motown icons the Four Tops are set to perform the national anthem at Game 3 of the American League championship series in their hometown of Detroit.

They're to sing Tuesday before the Tigers face the Boston Red Sox at Comerica Park in a series tied at one game apiece.

The Four Tops were key members of the Motown Records family of artists in the 1960s. Their hits include "Reach Out, I'll Be There" and "Baby I Need Your Loving."

Also before the game, the ceremonial first pitch is to be thrown out by former Tigers star Lance Parrish.
