Detroit Tigers season is upon us. Everyone’s favorite American League Central team opens the season against the Miami Marlins. The Tigers begin a bid for a fifth Central title in six years on the road.
Conveniently, the team is staying in Florida for the matchup. While the rest of the fans in Michigan will have to wait for later in the week to see the Tigers at home, you can catch your team on the television against the Fish.
