The Detroit Tigers are one of the charter members of the American League, one of only four clubs located in their original city. The Tigers have a deep and rich history that started in earnest in 1905 when the team acquired Ty Cobb, a fearless player with a mean streak, who according to many baseball fans and writers is the greatest player of all time. Cobb helped the Tigers won their first American League pennant in 1907, and Detroit Tigers Tickets were always in demand as the fans filled what was then called Tiger Stadium to watch the Tigers play. While Cobb dominated the American League like no other player in his era, his play did not translate to World Championships. After losing back to back World Series in 1908 and 1909, the Tigers did not appear in the Fall Classic again until Cobb was long retired. The Tiger teams of the 1930s were consistently among the league's best with Mickey Cochrane behind the plate, Hank Greenberg, one of the greatest Jewish baseball players of all time, at first, and Charlie Gehringer at second. With a team that Detroit fans loved, power and speed and pitching -- the Detroit Tigers defeated the Cubs 4 games to 2 to win the 1935 World Series, which concluded with Goose Goslin's dramatic game-ending single, scoring Cochrane to seal the victory. Detroit Tigers Tickets sales were strong through that era, which ended with Greenberg, a future Hall of Famer, returning from service in WWII to lead the Tigers to another World Championship in 1945, again defeating the Cubs. Notwithstanding the debut of outfielder Al Kaline, in the 1940's, who won the batting crown in 1955 at age 20 -- the youngest player ever to do so, the Detroit Tigers were not a good ball club again until the mid-1960's when they would develop a nucleus that had Tiger fans clamoring for Detroit Tigers Tickets and would eventually bring another World Championship to Detroit. The Tigers again reached the pinnacle of baseball in 1968, finishing with a 103-59 record. In a year that was marked by dominant pitching, starter Denny McLain went 31-6, and was unanimously voted American League Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award winner for his efforts. The team was led by Mickey Lolich, Norm Cash and Bill Freehan. In the 1968 World Series, the Tigers met the defending World champion St. Louis Cardinals, led by starter Bob Gibson (who had posted a record 1.12 ERA during the regular season) and speedy outfielder Lou Brock. Fans with Detroit Tigers Tickers were treated to Gibson and Lolich pitching brilliantly throughout the Series. The Detroit Tigers won a thrilling Game Seven and the World Series. For his three victories that propelled the Tigers to the World Championship, Lolich was named the World Series Most Valuable Player. Another slow period in Detroit Tigers history came to a screeching halt in 1984, when the Detroit Tigers had another amazing season and brought home another World Championship to Motown. Detroit Tigers Tickets were never hotter than in that Summer of 1984, when 1984 team started out at a record 35-5 pace. The team was managed by George "Sparky" Anderson , and led by ace Jack Morris, the great double play combination of shortstop Alan Trammell and second baseman Lou Whitaker, star outfielder Kirk Gibson, and relief ace Willie Hernandez, who won the 1984 American League Cy Young Award and Most Valuable Player. The Detroit Tigers, after another down period in their history, are now primed to win another World Series. Let's be honest. There is no team that has a better chance of playing in October than the Detroit Tigers. Sure, the American League Central is stacked, the Cleveland Indians will be tough and the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox are always formidable. And the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Anaheim Angels are always looming. But in the end, pound for pound, the Detroit Tigers have the brain and the brawn, the speed and the power, and the depth across the pitching staff to be marching deep into the playoffs. Comerica Park is sold out for the entire season, and Detroit Tigers Tickets will be tough to find this year, but Just Great Tickets has all the action, from opening day this April to the World Series.
