DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s not spring training yet, but it was the next best thing as TigerFest took place at Comerica Park Saturday. It was a chance for fans to get up close to some of their favorite Tiger’s players for pictures and autographs.

Thousands of fans like Scott Allport of Windsor got a chance to see Alex Avila, Austin Jackson and Danny Worth.

“It’s a great time, I mean, it’s a great pump-up for the season to show the fans … that the team absolutely cares for the fans and city,” said Allport.

Dan Lloyd of Amherstberg was in line for autographs at Tiger-Fest: “We just saw Rick Porcello and one of the new players, Kyle Lobstein¬†and before that it was Miguel Cabrera.”

Lloyd said Cabrera didn’t have the Triple Crown trophy with him but definitely looked ready for the new season.

Allport and a lot of other fans feel the Tiger’s will win the World Series this year. TigerFest had a lot of fun activities like touring the clubhouse and there was a kid zone for the youngest fans.
