Three reasons to check out the free Detroit Tigers mini-camp
With the recent blast of snow across the state of Michigan, Detroit Tigers fans got some news that may warm them up a bit.
The lockout continues to eat into Major League Baseball’s 2022 timeline as news came out that spring training games would be canceled until March 5. The labor discussions between the MLBPA and the owners will resume on Monday with the goal of hopefully starting the season on time. For Detroit Tigers fans and baseball fans around the league, the news was frustrating to hear.
Recently, there have been posts by fans on social media who are canceling their MLB.TV subscriptions because of the disappointment by the owners to come with a solution that would be a fair compromise to the players.
So far, the spring training games that would be missed would go as follows:
- Friday, February 25th versus Southeastern University
- Saturday, February 26th versus Washington
- Monday, February 28th versus Atlanta
- Wednesday, March 2nd versus Pittsburgh
