Detroit Tigers’ Scott Harris told of his three concepts to instill.

The Detroit Tigers have officially hired their new leader in the front office. The team announced Scott Harris was hired to be the team’s president of baseball operations and officially introduced him in a press conference on Tuesday.

During Tuesday’s press conference, Harris had a little bit to say and fielded questions throughout the rest of the time available. By the end, most Detroit Tigers fans likely were bought in with what Harris had to say.

Even if he came out the gates sputtering a bit, he settled in nicely after getting some nerves and jitters out early. My initial reaction is to be fired up about the fire and super pumped. It feels like Harris is going to bring a lot to the Tigers organization and help them get moving in the right direction.

But I would like to ground everyone, including myself, that the fire Avila train was full steam ahead. So just about anyone who came in and offered some different perspective would have likely been able to “win” the press conference.

The standards were not all that high to walk away on top of the presser. But, enough of that. Back to drinking the Scott Harris Kool-Aid. Harris spoke about his plans for the organization briefly before taking questions.

He mentioned three tenants, his big picture visions and plans summarized into three concepts.

Given these, there is a lot of expanding to do. There is a lot for the Tigers to see out of Harris and the company in the coming months, but these three concepts could do a lot for the organization.

Here is a deeper dive into Scott Harris’s three concepts for the Detroit Tigers.
