On this Date in Tigers History

  • 2005 — The Tigers hosted the MLB All-Star Game at Comerica Park. The American League jumped out to an early 7-0 lead and held on for the 7-5 victory. The win was the eighth consecutive for the American League and raised their record to 3-1 in all-star games played in Detroit.
  • 1979 — After a delay of an hour and 16 minutes, the White Sox are forced to forfeit the second game of twi-night doubleheader against the Tigers when more than 5,000 fans refuse to leave the field during Disco Demolition Night. Mike Veeck’s promotion involves admitting fans for 98 cents with a disco record, collecting the vinyl and then literally blowing up the LPs and .45s in center field. Read this Fungo Flashback from the 30-year anniversary of the night.
  • 1970 — In the second inning of an eventual 7-3 win over the Orioles, the Tigers lay down a record-tying three sacrifice bunts. Go figure.

  • 1911— In the first inning of a 9-0 win over the Athletics at Detroit, Ty Cobb walks, then on consecutive pitches steals second base, third base, and home off lefty Harry Krause.
