One prediction about the Tigers' 2020 season is a sure thing. It will be like no other season baseball fans have ever seen.
Detroit will play its first game of the shortened campaign Friday night in Cincinnati against the Reds.
In addition to a schedule cut from 162 games to 60, the Tigers will be playing under a host of new rules designed to limit the spread of COVID-19. They include limited seating in the dugouts, and a ban on spitting and high-fives.
Michigan radio sports commentator John U. Bacon says MLB is getting it right when it comes to safety.
