Today marked the first day of official full-squad workouts for the Detroit Tigers, and also marked the first time (in a number of weeks) that the temperature here in Grand Rapids, Michigan rose above the freezing mark. One can almost feel spring bursting forth from the earth.
We’re still one week away from the first time the Tigers will take the field against an opponent (and several more from the official start of spring), but for now enjoy these photos of the team in sunny Lakeland, Florida.
