LOOK: Detroit Tigers release 2018 Spring Training promo video

Sharing is caring!

It may be cold and snowy in Michigan but it is already in the low to mid-80s in Lakeland, Florida where the Detroit Tigers will make their preparations for the 2018 season.

As we know, the Tigers roster will look much different this coming season than it did a year ago. Justin Verlander, Justin Upton, and J.D. Martinez have moved on and there is a new sheriff in town as Ron Gardenhire will be calling the shots as the new Tigers manager.

The rebuild is officially underway and we know there will be many ups and downs but it will be interesting to watch some of the younger players develop before our eyes.

In honor of Spring Training, the Detroit Tigers tweeted out the following promo video.



5 must-see Detroit Tigers games in 2018

We all know that 2018 is going to be a long year for Detroit Tigers fans.  That being said, there are some great opportunities to get out to Comerica Park and watch the festivities. Tickets shouldn’t be hard to get!

After reviewing the schedule, here are 5 must-see games in 2018:

1. March 29, 2018 – 1:10 PM – Opening Day vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

 This one is a no-brainer.  Opening Day in Detroit should be a state holiday. If you’ve never been downtown to see the spectacle, I highly recommend it. It’s a rite of passage for all Tiger baseball fans, and this year’s date of March 29th is just the 4th ever to be played in March. The Tigers are hoping to extend their Opening Day win streak to 10 games dating back to 2009. They are 66-50-1 all-time in home openers since 1901.


2. May 28, 2018 – 1:10 PM – Memorial Day vs. Los Angeles Angels

Memorial Day is a great day to get out to the ballpark and see former Detroit Tigers Ian Kinsler and Justin Upton. The Angels are loaded and should be a threat in the AL West in 2018.  If that’s not enough, check out the themed shirts the team will be giving away to attendees.
