Then they come on April 8th for opening day at Comerica against the Yankees. game time for that one is set for 1:08 p.m. They'll play the Yankees for 3 games, then their first interleague series of the season will be against the Pirates in Detroit. All game times in the opening homestand are 1:08 p.m.
After playing the Marlins and Pirates in the first week 10 days of the season, they'll host the Phillies on May 23-25, the Marlins on June 28-29 and the Mets on August 5-7.
The Tigers season will end the first two days of October in Atlanta.
