Tigers plan to honor '68 championship team

By Jason Beck / MLB.com | 02/28/2013 5:15 PM ET

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Forty-five years after the Tigers won the World Series behind greats such as Al Kaline, Willie Horton, Mickey Lolich and Denny McLain, the Tigers will plan to honor the team with a tribute on Saturday, May 25, before their 4:05 p.m. ET game against the Minnesota Twins.

Members of the 1968 world championship team will be celebrated in an on-field, pregame ceremony. The first 10,000 fans through the gates will receive a commemorative coin.

Other special nights announced include the 19th annual Negro Leagues tribute on April 27, the 43rd annual Polish-American night on May 24, the third annual classic car show on June 8, Christmas in July on July 31, the eighth annual Fiesta Tigres celebration on Aug. 3, and Star Wars night on Sept. 14.

Individual game tickets for the entire home schedule will go on sale Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. ET online at tigers.com, by phone at 866-66-TIGER , and in person at the Comerica Park box office and at Hockeytown Authentics in Troy.
