#2: The Great Fans!

The Detroit Tigers have some of the best fans in all of baseball. If you have ever attended a game when Justin Verlander is pitching, you have seen the pink K’s. A group of fans make sure to attend all of his games, so they can keep track of his strikeouts.

Along with the pink K’s, there are plenty of other fans who make the trek to Comerica Park on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. There are numerous season ticket holders who bring their children to games, endearing the sport to the next generation of fans. At all of the weekend games, fans donate thousands of dollars to the causes that hold 50/50 raffles. Fans purchase scoreboard messages for their friends and family; the price of the message goes to the generous Tigers Foundation charity.

The fans support each other and their love for this team. The Detroit Tigers would not be where they are today, as one of the oldest and most recognized teams in all of professional athletics without the support of their loyal fan base.
