The Majors Detroit:
The final hours, seconds, and minutes of 2012 are dwindling to a close. With 2012 just about over, I find myself sitting back and reflecting on the Detroit Tigers 2012 season. It was a season that started with gargantuan expectations, after owner Mick Illitch opened up his wallet and added Prince Fielder.
The 2012 season wasn’t a dream season per se’. There was lots of highs and lows, but in the end the Tigers found themselves in the World Series. However, they fell four wins short of their ultimate goal of winning a World Championship.
Lets take a look forward now to the fresh start we can call 2013.
‘New Years Resolutions’ are typically something we say we’re going to try do to better ourselves in the coming year. Most of them are common goals. Some people want to quit smoking, lose weight, try and do something in their job career. But by two months in to trying to get their goal- people give up.
But, for these 5 Tigers’ players, I hope they follow through and persue.
