The 9th Annual Fiesta Tigres kicked off on Friday afternoon with a luncheon at Comerica Park that featured a Q&A session with Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez. Friday’s festivities also included the annual “Dia en el Parque” event that invited children from the Clark Park Coalition to the ballpark. These kids had the chance to take a tour of the ballpark and meet J.D. Maratinez. Saturday’s celebration included a special Tigres jersey and a ceremony honoring Pudge Rodriguez.

9. Robot First Pitch

The Tigers have seen Robocop, Jack White and even a Samurai throw out the first pitch this year, so why not add an actual robot to the list? This robot was designed by Michigan high school students and is able to shoot a ball at over 100 miles per hour, but the students took it easy on PAWS Wednesday evening.

10. Tigers score in every inning

The Tigers scored in all eight innings of a nine-inning home game for the first time since 1912 in their 11-5 win over the Rockies on Saturday night.
