Detroit Tigers Details
The Tigers were a founding member of the American League in 1901. They are the oldest American League team to have never changed its name or have moved to a different city. The Tigers acquired Ty Cobb, arguably the most famous player in the history of the franchise, in 1905. Cobb played 21 years for the Tigers and was a player/manager for the team from 1921-1926. Cobb was known for his ability to get on base: he did not hit many home runs, but he was a 12 time AL batting champion, and his .367 career batting average is the highest in Major League Baseball.
The Tigers have won four World Series titles. Their most recent championship came in 1984, over the San Diego Padres. The Tigers received strong pitching from Jack Morris, a member of the Hall of Fame’s class of 2018, and from Willie Hernandez, who won the Cy Young and American League MVP awards as a closing pitcher. The Tigers also went to the World Series in 2006 after narrowly missing out on the AL Central title. More recently, the Tigers won the AL Central division in four consecutive seasons (2011-2014) and appeared in the ALCS in three (2011-2013) of those seasons. The Tigers often relied on elite play from fan-favorite pitcher Justin Verlander.
The Tigers traded Verlander to the Astros near the end of the 2017 season. Detroit finished the year tied for the worst record in MLB and was able to trade their most valuable player to a championship contender. Verlander won his first World Series title with the Houston Astros, but the deal was not one-sided: the Tigers received the first pick in the 2018 MLB draft.
Two-time MVP and face of the franchise Miguel Cabrera will be back for his 11th season with the team, giving Detroit fans another chance to see one of the greatest baseball players of his generation. Ron Gardenhire, who had previously managed the Minnesota Twins and was a coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2017, will be the Tigers’ new manager for the 2018 season.
The Tigers play at Comerica Park in downtown Detroit, near all of the city’s major pro-sports arenas.
