Joe Tigers fan was in Jupiter, Florida on Monday to take in the Tigers-Marlins spring training tilt. With a seat down the first base line, he had to be ready for everything – including catching a foul ball with his hat, stealing it from Marlins first baseman Casey Kotchman.
Jhonny Peralta was the benefactor of another couple swings, as was the lady who was given the foul ball. Fox Sports Detroit color commentator for Tigers’ broadcasts, Rod Allen, was moonlighting on the Marlins telecast today and threw kudos Joe’s way. Nice play, Joe. I tip my cap to you, my friend.

Entering last season we were worried about Prince Fielder‘s home run total moving from Miller Park (142 park factor for homers) to Comerica (97). As expected, Fielder’s 30 homers were his lowest since hitting 28 in his rookie 2006 season. What wasn’t expected was exactly why he hit fewer homers. Yes, his HR/FB rate (17.9%) was [...]

Despite the presences of Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and other stars, Justin Verlander remains the face of the Detroit Tigers franchise — and one of the most recognizable and popular players in baseball, period.
