It may be a frigid day here in the metro Detroit area but that does not mean we are ignoring the Boys of Summer!
On Wednesday, the Detroit Tigers announced seven Minor League affiliates for the 2021 season “and beyond.”
As you can see below, the West Michigan Whitecaps have been elevated on the Tigers minor-league ladder, while the Erie SeaWolves remain an affiliate of the Tigers, despite previous rumors that they would be dropped.
Congrats to all seven of the teams listed below!
New look, same @RoadToDetroit.
