Update: The Tigers release tonight's starting lineup (see below)
The Detroit Tigers begin the 2020 semi-season Friday night in Cincinnati at 6:10 p.m.-- and oh how weird it will be with no fans in the stands.
Detroit Free Press columnist Mitch Albom writes:
Play ball! ...
And not much else.
No fans. No hot dogs. No “Beer here!” No programs.
No high-fives. No chewing tobacco. No locker room interviews.
He asked Tigers pitcher Michael Fulmer how strange this has all been.
“On a scale of 1 to 10,” he replied, “it’s been a 12.”
Detroit's first home game of the 60-game season is Monday against the KC Royals.
