Major League Baseball started its season March 28, but it took a week to make it to Comerica Park. Not that spring weather came along for the ride; Thursday remained overcast, chilly and cold.
But hey, the Tigers beat the Kansas City Royals by 5-4. Eight games into the season, the team is 5-3 and in second place behind the Minnesota Twins in the American League Central Division.
Hope springs eternal, especially on Opening Day.

Mounted police were on hand for crowd control
It's nice to share with close friends
Even on Opening Day, it's still the Motor City.
