Tigers' All-Star teacher finalist announced


DETROIT -- Along with Target and PEOPLE, Major League Baseball announced Tuesday the 30 winners of the "Target Presents PEOPLE All-Star Teachers" campaign.

Detroit's honoree is Michael Sinclair, who has taught physics, calculus, geology and astronomy at Kalamazoo Area Math and Science Center for the past 26 years.

Sinclair was the 2006 Michigan High School Science Teacher of the Year. As the Tigers' winner, he'll be one of 30 teachers recognized in a pregame ceremony before the All-Star Game at Target Field next Tuesday.

Fans cast votes at AllStarTeachers.com to whittle a pool of 90 finalists down to the 30 winners.
