Detroit Tigers to Wear Special Jerseys on Saturday


The Detroit Tigers released a photograph of the special uniforms the team will wear on Saturday as a part of their yearly ¡Fiesta Tigres! celebration. The event is meant to “celebrate and honor the contributions of Hispanic and Latino players to the game of baseball”. Here’s the picture, as released on the team’s official Instagram account:

It’s a departure from the famous home whites, but it remains a clean and classic look in sticking with the bule on white. I think it’s a nice tribute to a group of players – including a number of both past and present Tigers stars – that have contributed so much to not only the game as a whole, but also to the Detroit Tigers franchise specifically.
