Tigers to honor '84 world champions
Organization to celebrate 25th anniversary at Comerica Park

By Jason Beck / MLB.com

09/24/09 6:01 PM ET

CLEVELAND -- While the Tigers begin a homestand that will determine whether they get to the postseason, they'll be honoring the last Detroit squad to win the World Series.

Two dozen members of the 1984 World Series champion Detroit Tigers are scheduled to take part in their 25th anniversary reunion celebration Monday night, when the division-leading Tigers host the second-place Twins at Comerica Park.

Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson, World Series MVP Alan Trammell, American League MVP and Cy Young Award winner Guillermo Hernandez, Kirk Gibson, Lance Parrish and Jack Morris will join Dan Petry, Milt Wilcox, Dave Rozema, Juan Berenguer, Rod Allen, Tom Brookens, Darrell Evans, Johnny Grubb, Larry Herndon, Rupert Jones, Barbaro Garbey and coaches Roger Craig, Dick Tracewski and Gates Brown for an evening to remember the wire-to-wire champions.

The festivities begin soon after gates to the ballpark open at 5 p.m. ET. Members of the '84 Tigers will be answering fan questions at the FS Detroit Brushfire Grill while also taking part in photo opportunities in sections 125 and 144. Both run from 5:15 to 6:10 p.m.

The first 10,000 fans through the gates will receive a free 1984 Tigers replica road jersey. Once the game begins, the Tigers will be giving away autographed memorabilia from the '84 champions to hundreds of lucky winners selected at random.

Tickets remain available for Monday's reunion, as well as the entire week-long homestand to wrap up the regular season. Tickets are on sale online at tigers.com.

1984 Detroit Tigers honored Monday at Comerica Park
25th Anniversary Reunion features Q&A session, photo opportunities; first 10,000 fans receive '84 road jersey, gates open at 5 p.m.

DETROIT - The 1984 Detroit Tigers will be honored during an on-field, pregame ceremony at 6:40 p.m. on Monday, September 28 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Tigers World Series championship. Twenty-four members of the '84 Tigers are scheduled to participate in the 1984 World Championship 25th Anniversary reunion, including Sparky Anderson, Darrell Evans, ALCS MVP Kirk Gibson, 1984 AL MVP and Cy Young winner Guillermo Hernandez, Jack Morris, Lance Parrish and World Series MVP Alan Trammell. Gates open early at 5 p.m.

The Tigers will host the Minnesota Twins at 7:05 p.m. to begin a seven-game homestand. Tickets are available for all remaining home games at the Comerica Park Box Office, online at www.tigers.com, by phone at (866) 66-TIGER (84437), at Detroit-area Meijer stores and at Hockeytown Authentics, located at 1845 E. Big Beaver Road in Troy.

Fans have the opportunity to interact with members of the 1984 Tigers from 5:15-6:10 p.m. either during a question and answer session in the FS Detroit Brushfire Grill or during photo opportunities at Sections 125 and 144. Additionally, the first 10,000 fans to enter Comerica Park will receive a free 1984 Detroit Tigers replica road jersey, sponsored by Frito-Lay, and throughout the game hundreds of fans will have a chance to win 1984 autographed memorabilia.

The 1984 Tigers finished with the best record in baseball that season and a franchise best for most wins in a season, ending with a 104-58 record to win the American League East Division. The team swept the Kansas City Royals in three games to win the American League pennant and then defeated the San Diego Padres in five games during the Fall Classic. The Tigers captured the organization's fourth World Series title on October 14 that season, in front of 51,901 fans at Tiger Stadium.

Media members are invited to attend the '84 Tigers team photo at 2 p.m. on the field, and a press conference with members of the '84 Tigers at 3 p.m. in the auxiliary clubhouse (on service level).
