Because of all the renovations at Comerica last winter, Tigerfest was cancelled last year. The year before, they did provide some streaming video of the player panel appearances (which is when most of us were introduced to the wit and wisdom of Phil Coke). The player panels provide a chance for fans to ask questions of the players. In 2011 I remember the first question Justin Verlander got was what he planned to do differently that year to avoid another dismal performance in April. He laughed and said "You would have to bring that up..."
I'm sure it will be crowded and crazy this year, but it still sounds like the most fun you can have in January in Michigan. I expect many of you will go, and I also expect detailed reports back.
