#2: Ordóñez Walks to the World Series

One of the highlights of the 2016 season was the 10-year anniversary of the 2006 World Series. Players who stole the hearts of Tigers fans returned to Comerica Park to reminisce about the unbelievable season.

While 2006 had plenty of memorable moments, the one that topped them all was Magglio Ordóñez and his walk-off home run against the Oakland A’s and Huston Street. The game was tied at three and Ordóñez faced Street with two runners on base. The home run scored other fan favorites, Craig Monroe and Plácido Polanco. Prior to this unforgettable moment, the last time the Tigers had taken the pennant was in 1984.
