Prior to today’s game, fans were welcome to give their thanks to ex-Tiger Magglio Ordonez, who officially announced his retirement.
It was a nice ceremony, with the majority of the talking being done by Dan Dickerson, the radio play-by-play broadcaster for the Tigers. Included in the presentation was a nice video message which included some highlights from his time in Detroit, as well as a few words from his former teammates.
Unfortunately the Tigers weren’t able to get a win, but that didn’t mean fans weren’t able to have a good time at the ballpark. Here’s some more pictures from the ballpark today.
Word from Tigers beat reporter Jason Beck is that the Tigers have just announced that the Tigers will be placing Brandon Inge on the 15-day disabled list with mono. In the meantime, the Tigers will be calling up catcher Omir Santos from Toledo, who will likely be sent back down once (and if) Magglio Ordonez makes his return to the Tigers which could be as soon as next week Monday. In all likelihood, it would appear that Danny Worth and Don Kelly will split the extra playing time at third base until Inge returns.
Today with no doubt will be a big game for the Detroit Tigers and Brad Penny. After having two disappointing starts, there are a lot of questions as to whether or not he’s still a pitcher worth keeping around. I’m curious to see how he handles a rather difficult Texas lineup, but hopefully he can at least put together a quality start.
