Play Ball! Tigers Open Home Schedule vs Yankees

April 5, 2013

The Detroit Tigers play their first home game of the season Friday against the New York Yankees. It's a rematch of last year's American League Championship Series, in which Detroit swept the Yanks to win the pennant. The Tigers went on to the World Series, where they lost four straight games to the San Francisco Giants. WDET's Pat Batcheller spoke with Dan Dickerson, the radio play-by-play announcer for the Tigers. Dickerson says Opening Day is basically a holiday in Detroit.
