Photos: Detroit Tigers Spring Training

LAKELAND, Fla. — Greetings from the city that proclaims, “Close to Everything… Away from It All.” I’m here covering the FHSAA wrestling finals.

On Saturday morning during my spare time I decided to visit Joker Merchant Stadium – Spring Training home of Major League Baseball’s Detroit Tigers since 1966.

Below are a few artsy shots I took of All-Stars, American League MVPs and autograph seekers. I might add a few more traditional ones of manager Jim Leyland and co.
