Missing Detroit Tigers' Opening Day? Here are nine greats from the past

Today was supposed to be one of baseball’s holiest of holidays: Opening Day (the earliest in MLB history, at that), with the Detroit Tigers originally set to play in Cleveland at 1 p.m.

Tigers starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann reacts after giving up a hit to Blue Jays left fielder Teoscar Hernandez, not shown, during the seventh inning in Toronto on Thursday, March 28, 2019.

Zimmermann finished with four strikeouts, but he didn’t get the win; Toronto held the Tigers scoreless until the 10th, when Niko Goodrum doubled and rookie left fielder Christin Stewart homered on an 0-2 count to take the lead.

Finally, Young wrapped up the 11-3 win (the Tigers’ largest Opening Day margin of victory) with another blast to deep right, this time off reliever Mike MacDougal.

Free Press sports writer Joe S. Jackson noted of Mullin: “He had all of the speed that he has ever shown and his curve ball was a wonder.” Incidentally, both the hit and the walk went to center fielder Gavvy Cravath, batting fifth.
