Detroit Sports 360:
Today was the annual exhibition game between the Detroit Tigers and the Florida Southern Mocs. Since the series started in 1979 the Tigers have earned a 22-1-2 record, which is a pretty good indication of what was to come in today’s game.
Before the game even started skipper, Jim Leyland made it clear that all his regulars would get one at bat in the line up and one to two innings in the field. Andy Oliver started the game, and was impressive over three innings, giving up only one hit, allowing just a single walk, and striking out six.
The Tigers wasted no time getting on the board. Brennan Boesch doubled to center, and would later be doubled in by Prince Fielder, who received a standing ovation coming to the plate and after driving in Boesch. Fielder would later be driven in himself on a single by Delmon Young. That would be the only scoring done by Detroit’s starters.
Miguel Cabrera flashed some leather today, which was no surprise to any of his teammates. Justin Verlander tweet...

When the Detroit Tigers made their run to the AL championship series last year, Brennan Boesch wasn't able to play.
Boesch, the 26-year-old outfielder who hit 16 home runs in 115 games, was unavailable because of a right thumb injury that required surgery, but he's back now and says he's 100 percent heading into the season.
Boesch is expected to play an important role...
When I was 7 years old, my father decided he did not think it was best for me to tear up the Tee Ball record book for another year, so he wrote a letter to my city’s youth baseball association, telling them I was ready to be called up to play with the 8, 9, and 10 year olds a year early. They agreed, and I was allowed to take the field. From there I excelled for...
Andy Dirks isn’t going to get a starting spot. With Austin Jackson, Brennan Boesch and Delmon Young penciled in as likely starters, there isn’t much room in the outfield. But with one Major League season under his belt, Dirks could be a big asset coming off the bench if he shines this spring in Lakeland.
