Victor Martinez kicked off the scoring in 2014 with a solo home run.

Victor Martinez got off to a slow start in 2013, but finished the season on a tear with a white-hot second half. This seems to have carried over to the 2014 regular season, as Martinez's first at-bat resulted in his -- and the Tigers' -- first home run of the year.

IMPORTANT OBSERVATION: the song played over the P.A. system in celebration of this special occasion is "Turn Down for What" by DJ Snake and Lil' Jon, a pair of hip-hop legends. This song was also featured in Torii Hunter's #getcrunk video on the team plane heading back to Michigan.
