It worked once.
Last week former Tigers pitcher and North Hill teacher Andrew Good led his class in a rousing version of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

And to give credit where credit is due, the Tigers won both games played after the song.
Now it's the Rochester Hills Fire Department's turn to root on the home team. The firefighters got an assist from a visiting RARA preschool class, an adorable pup looking for his forever home and Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan Barnett.
Check out the video and feel free to sing along.
'This is Tigers country'
Miguel Cabrera is Barnett's Tiger and on game days Barnett dons his Cabrera T-shirt to watch.
Does it bring the Tigers luck?
But whether a shirt is lucky or not, Barnett said, "I encourage all citizens to show their Tigers pride — with hats, flags, whatever. This is Tigers country!"
In fact, as a show of Tiger pride, Barnett has given Rochester Hills firefighters permission to wear their Tigers hats to work on game days.
"We have tremendous Tigers pride in our community," Barnett said.
