HAPPY HOME OPENER!

Home opener notes: This is the 111th home opener. The team is 58-51-1 in the previous 110. ... Yes that was a tie. There used to be a fairly sizable number of ties in the early years of the American League. The Tigers tied the St. Louis Browns 4-4 during Detroit's home opener on April 22, 1904 at Bennett Park.
