Curtis Granderson started the Tigers spring season off right taking Florida Southern pitcher Dan Albritton yard. More importantly today’s game signaled the start of the baseball season and for that I’m excited. We also go a look at Cameron Maybin who replaced Curtis in the second inning. Maybin came up with two hits out of four at-bats, the other two being strikeouts. He is probably following in Granderson’s footsteps a bit too much with the strikeouts :) You can find the box score at mlb.com
Today’s game was not available on the Radio (that I could find at least) or TV though many of the upcoming games will be available. I’ve posted the Radio & TV Spring Training Schedules below for your convenience. I’m not sure if the spring games will be blacked out from play over the internet though I know that regular season games are.
