Regner: Does Michigan really need fireworks to enhance fan experience?

When news broke that Michigan's athletic department is seeking approval from the Board of Regents to have a fireworks show after two football games this upcoming season, I immediately thought, "Man, this means Michigan isn't going to have a very good football team."

Gwynn's death makes Tigers, MLB reassess use of smokeless tobacco

When I heard about Tony Gwynn's death last month, I thought about a story I had seen on 60 Minutes many years ago. It was about an 18-year-old high school track star named Sean Marsee who had used smokeless tobacco since he was 12. Marsee found a small sore in his mouth, which turned out to be cancer.  Doctors had to remove half of Marsee's tongue. Marsee also underwent...

Tigers discuss which players in clubhouse would make good managers

If you ask the Detroit Tigers if they see any future managers in their clubhouse, you will get two common answers. First, everyone thinks Alex Avila will be good. Second, while they all have suggestions about which teammates would be great skippers, very few of them want to do the job themselves. The conversation started during a pregame discussion with Brad Ausmus. "I can&...

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers announced Wednesday afternoon that Tom Veryzer, their light-hitting shortstop in the early 1970s, had died on Tuesday. He was 61.
