TRAVERSE CITY — Former Detroit Red Wings forward Darren McCarty will make an appearance at Wuerfel Park on Tuesday as part of a nine-game homestand.

McCarty — a member of the Red Wings Stanley Cup championship teams in 1997, 1998, 2002 and 2008 — will sign pregame autographs on the Wuerfel Park concourse as the Beach Bums host Strike Out ALS Night.

Traverse City will wear special jerseys during the game that will be auctioned off during the contest against the Joliet Slammers with the proceeds going to research for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
