Tigers players solve the dumb Laurel/Yanny internet debate

Most of them are wrong, though.

Remember that blue and black dress, and the kerfuffle that spread across the internet when a bunch of weirdos thought it was gold and white? Well, the great debate is back, and this time the thing people are fighting about at water coolers in offices across the country is: “Do you hear Yanny or Laurel?”

The Tigers players and broadcast staff got a chance to answer, and their response was overwhelmingly Team Laurel, even though the recording clearly says Yanny and I will die on this hill.

Actually, Tigers’ outfielder Nicholas Castellanos nails it when he says “I don’t think anyone is right or wrong” because intrepid internet detectives have determined the recording actually says BOTH Yanny and Laurel, and what you hear depends on what frequency you’re attuned to, high or low.

Still though, it totally says Yanny.
