With the Tigers ready for the playoffs again, we’re getting prepared to celebrate the best time of the year for baseball fans. If you’re always looking for more Tigers, there’s plenty out there to enjoy.
While many are no doubt excited to see the stars like Cabrera, Verlander, Fielder, Scherzer; at the library we’re making signs, painting our faces, and getting ready to go out for Halloween as our favourite: The Tigers Dugout Librarian @TigersLibrarian (she’s the one in the cardigan in the Tiger’s Dugout.) Even if she’s not your favourite of the Tigers, there’s a lot out there. Twitter and the blogosphere are full of great people. They can help you follow and keep up on everything Tigers.
There’s the official account @tigers run by the organization, but there are also plenty of others worth following like @TigersMLive, @tigersbuzztap, @blessyouboys , @catswithbats. The Detroit Free Press Sport’s crew @freepsports and Windsor Star’s sports people @WinStarSports can keep you up to date on the Tigers and the local sports scene.
If 140 characters isn’t enough, there are also some great blogs out there. http://www.blessyouboys.com/ , http://www.detroittigersweblog.com/ , http://www.mlive.com/tigers/ , http://www.tigersdenblog.com/
, and http://www.detroittigertales.com are all great for keeping up to date on all the speculation, speeches, and scuttlebutt.
Some blogs are managed by anonymous fans, others by professional sports writers:
