Comerica Bank is currently accepting applications for its Grand Slam Grant program.

The program offers two $10,000 grants to high school baseball or softball teams to create, expand or improve their programs. Comerica will award the grants to one high school from Southeast Michigan and another in Central/West Michigan.

"Comerica is proud to support Michigan's hometown teams by presenting the Grand Slam Grant for the third consecutive year," said Thomas D. Ogden, president, Comerica Bank-Michigan.

All public high schools in Comerica's markets of Southeast Michigan and Central and West Michigan are eligible to apply for the Grand Slam Grant. The funds can be used for field improvements, equipment, training camps, or other baseball or softball-related expenses.

Grant applications will be reviewed for a variety of criteria including overall need, creativity, and school and community impact. The grand recipient will be selected by the Comerica Bank Grand Slam Grant Selection Committee, consisting of representatives from Comerica Bank and the Detroit Tigers.

Eligible schools can download the grant application at www.comerica.com/grandslamgrant. Once complete, the application, along with supporting materials such as photos or videos must be submitted via email to grandslamgrant@comerica.com no later than 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, February 27, 2013.
