DETROIT (WWJ) – Tigers fans are dealing with their disappointment Monday morning after their team is swept out of the World Series.

Some fans leaving Comerica Park were downright mad! “They can’t hit,” said one fan. “Choke under pressure.”

Scott Young has been a Tigers fan since 1984 and he stayed at the ballpark with his son until the final out.

“It’s a little devastating, I bought my almost two-year-old son to his first World Series game and when I bought the tickets for the game, the fourth game sounded like it was going to be great and it turns out not to be,” Young said.

“I’m always hoping for next year,” lamented one man as he left the park. “That’s the story of the Tiger fan.”

Pointing to the relative lack of encouragement from the crowd, Doris Dybowski emailed us this comment at 10:33 Sunday night, “I have an issue with the Tiger fans. When I watch the San Francisco fans, each one is waving an orange flag and pumping up the team. In Detroit, if you watch the replay, only a few have white flags and waving. Keep the players going with enthusiasm. Wave the flag!”

“Give each fan entering the gate a white D flag! Lets go Tigers!” Dybowski said as she admitted to beating up her furniture in frustration.
