Detroit Tigers Baseball

Celebrating 55 years of Detroit Tigers Baseball on NewsRadio 790am WSGW!!!

The Detroit Tigers began in 1894 as a part of the Western League. The Tigers have won four World Series Titles (1935, 1945, 1968, and 1984), and ten American League Championships.

The Tigers play in Comerica Park, and are led by manager A.J. Hinch for a second straight year.

After a few seasons of rough baseball, the rebuilding project finally started to show signs of success last year as we brought you some fun moments on WSGW.

We heard Miguel Cabrera hit career home run #500. Spencer Turnbull pitched a no-hitter! And many younger Tigers made some major contributions, like Akil Baddoo, Casey Mize, Tarik Skubal, and Gregory Soto, who  helped pump some much-needed energy back into Tigers Nation!

The Tigers are poised to become a perennial contender for the AL Central crown, thanks to newly acquired starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez, and the much-anticipated season debut of outfielding prospect Riley Greene!

We are looking forward to Year #55 of Tigers Baseball on WSGW!

Final 2021 record: 77-85.

We would like to remind our listeners that you can only hear the Tigers on WSGW 790 through your radio. We are very sorry, but due to copyright rules, we cannot stream the games via the web or apps.
