Tigers baseball has flowed over the Great Lake State since the first game at Bennett Park in 1901. From the legendary Ty Cobb to Hank Greenberg to Al Kaline to Kirk Gibson; from Hal Newhouser shutouts at Briggs Stadium to Whitaker & Trammell turning double plays at Tiger Stadium to Curtis Granderson slashing triples at palatial Comerica Park, great moments and unforgettable games are chiseled into the Detroit baseball memory tablets.
This four-DVD set showcases four television broadcasts of games that are the heart of the love affair between fans and ball club.
Selected by tigers.com readers, these games mark glorious chapters in the history of the franchise. A Bengal-striped celebration that salutes the nostalgic glory from Tiger Stadium hosting the 1968 World Series to the present-day peninsula-shaking magic of Comerica Park: All 100% baseball made in Detroit.
