The Tigers start their season Friday, March 8, at 1:10 p.m. against the Chicago White Sox, at Comerica Park.
The Tigers have gotten several new players on their roster including Javier Baez, Austin Meadows, Tucker Barnhart, and Eduardo Rodriguez.
Via a quote on the Tigers website, “We have some amazing experiences planned for our fans, including Pink Out the Park, the jersey retirement of Tigers legend Lou Whitaker, our second annual Summer Bash, Negro Leagues Weekend, ¡Fiesta Tigres! and much more,” said Ellen Hill-Zeringue, Vice President of Marketing. “It’s going to be a very exciting summer at the ballpark, and we can’t wait to celebrate the start of baseball season with Tigers fans on Opening Day…”
