As the Detroit Tigers start off their training season this year in Lakeland, Florida, fans and commentators alike are keeping an eye out for updates. This will be the Tigers 44th year at Joker Marchant Stadium for spring training.
It is former catcher Brad Ausmus' first year managing the team since Jim Leyland's retirement last year.
Dan Dickerson, lead play-by-play commentator on the Detroit Tigers Radio Network, has just arrived in Florida. He talks with Current State about last season, new changes for the Tigers, and some predictions for the upcoming season. Dickerson says that while fans were disappointed that Detroit didn't win the World Series last year, it's untrue to say the season was a failure.
