You can keep your groundhogs. THIS is a real sign of Spring! Yesterday was the deadline for pitchers and catchers to report to spring training in Lakeland, and things start in earnest next week. The 2014 Detroit Tigers schedule says they have their first game on the 25th and open the season at Comerica Park on March 31st vs the Royals.

The Freep has an interesting article comparing new Tiger’s skipper Brad Ausmus to legendary Tiger manager Mickey Cochrane. A fun fact I learned is that Mickey Mantle was named after Cochrane.

Roger Dewitt aka hueytaxi is my go-to for Tiger spring training photos. View his photo from last year background big and see LOTS more in his Detroit Tigers spring training slideshow!
