Just a couple of quick notes on the eve of the Tigers last home game…
The Tigers should have topped the 2 million mark in attendance tonight. That would mark the first time since 2000 when Comerica Park opened. It will be interesting to see what the season ticket renewal rate is without the All Star incentive. What was most encouraging is that the Tigers drew quite well during July and August – regularly topping 30,000.
The Tigers announced today that they have extended agreements with Erie and West Michigan. Erie will continue to be the Tigers AA club through 2008, and the Whitecaps will be the low A affiliate through 2010.
Earlier this summer the team announced that Oneonta of the NY Penn league would continue to be the Rookie ball affiliate through 2010 as well.
I’ll be heading down to the final game tomorrow with the family. I’m looking forward to it, and hopefully the Tigers can close out the home season with a win.
Smoking Loon Thank you very much, StorminNorman$. Still a bit more work to do, but I absolutely had to complete the series
Jim EggersUSMC Took a break from the Xmas prep stuff and read this last piece, reminded me how one sided that DS
StorminNorman$ OUTSTANDING '14 recap Loon!!!
DET has won the past two AL Central titles by 1-game... I suspect with the newly re-loaded
Ilian Georgiev Thanks for sharing score board for 9th innings i have missed this match !
Vince in MN Yup, they definitely won't be running away with it like the last couple of years.
StorminNorman$ ...for the record, and if DD would have checked with me - I'd have signed Melky Cabrera and hung on
The approx. 75-80 games against AL Central teams will be more difficult for DET this year...as opposed to the past
Vince in MN Don Kelly is available, and he can pitch relief too.
