Photo Recap: May 24-27

The Memorial Day weekend was a busy one at Comerica Park, as the Tigers hosted games against the Minnesota Twins and Pittsburgh Pirates.

The team also celebrated several special events at the ballpark. Beginning on Friday, May 14 with the 43rd annual Polish-American Night at Comerica Park. Bands filled the concourse and hundreds of traditional Polish dancers took to the field in costume to celebrate the night.

Great pictures!! Thrilled that they were posted. I do wish though that names would have been included under the pictures so that we knew who we were looking at. They have all changed alot in the last 45 years. Will any of these pictures be available for sale??? I have a large collection of 1968 stuff and hope to add some of these to my stash. Thanks and GO TIGERS!!!

Can you send me the names of the 68 Tigers that attended? There’s a few I don’t recognize.
