When the Detroit Tigers take the Comerica Park field for the first time in 2017, they will be doing so for the first time since Mike Ilitch passed away.
As we know, the Tigers will be honoring Ilitch with a patch on their jersey, but we have now learned they will also be honoring Mr. I on the outfield grass.
Check it out.

There is no question about it, the Tigers will have a little extra to play for in 2017.
