Tigers Commit to Toledo as Triple A Afflitate Through 2010

I’m old enough to remember when the Tigers had their Triple A affiliate in Evansville, OH but for most of you, the Mud Hens in Toledo have been the Tigers Triple A afffiliate for as long as you can remember.  Now the Tigers have extended their deal with the Mud Hens and they’ll be keeping Toledo as their minor league affiliate through 2010.

The Tigers have the seventh longest relationship with a Triple A affiliate in baseball right now and it’s also nice because Toledo isn’t “too” far from Detroit so making a game is very possible with some planning. On top of that, the Mud Hens have had a fantastic run.  They’ve won the International League championship the past two years and they set an attendance record last year.

Personally, I’ve never made it to a Mud Hens game but I’m hoping too this year.  From what everyone who’s gone has told me, it’s a fun time.

Evansville? How long ago was that?

I believe it was prior to 1986. They were in Nashville for a couple of years prior to signing on with Toledo.
