Detmers is the author of the only complete-game no-hitter in Major League Baseball in 2022. The Los Angeles Angels star will be at the museum, located at 121 W. State St. in Nokomis.
Autographs will be $5 per item with a limit of five items per person. Cards and photos will be available for purchase at the museum. Items may also be brought in to be signed. Doors to the event will open at 1:45 p.m. on Nov. 26. All proceeds will be split between the museum and Camren’s Causes.
