Tiger’s Tie in Last Spring Game, 1984 Tiger’s Diary Begins

Nate Cornejo looked good when he started, keeping the ball away from the hitters, but eventually would give up 5 2/3 runs in 5 innings in the final game of the spring. The fact that the Yankees have already played two regular season games, and now had to come back and play Detroit in one final spring game, borders on the bizarre. In the end, they would play to a 7-7 ten inning tie.

Chris Shelton made the team, which I’m happy to see. The number one Rule 5 player taken from the Pirates, Shelton had an impressive spring, but looked to be set to go back to Pittsburgh, until Tram decided send backup catcher Mike DeFelice down to the minors.

But, the Tiger’s open up tomorrow. I’ll be at work, so I’ll miss all of it. Last year I was very sick the weekend before opening day (No really, I was sick), and took what will be tomorrow off last year. Being able to watch 3 different games was pretty cool (I don’t have MLB Ticket) and made the bed rest more tolerable.

And I missed the first few days, but I’ll catch up now. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1984 Tigers, so as the Tigers go through their season, I’ll also be adding a diary of the last Championship team.
