Pinch Hitting: First game memories
Here’s where I hand it over to you the readers. Earlier this year I celebrated the 25th anniversary of my first Tigers game. I was able to pinpoint the date by searching through retrosheet.
After seeing the amazing pictures that were taken of the Tiger Stadium last week, and the auction and upcoming demolition, it left me feeling more than a little nostalgic and melancholy.
So here’s the challenge, see if you can find the box score from your first Tigers game and please post it in the comments.
Was it at Tiger Stadium, or some place on the road?
Looking back at the boxscore is there anything that surprised you about the game or didn’t match your recollection?
