For, lo, the winter is past,

The rain is over and gone

The flowers appear on the Earth

The time of the singing of birds is come

And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.

The Tigers will face off against the Philadelphia Phillies today in Lakeland, Florida at 1:05 p.m. and can be heard on WXYT-FM (97.1).
