Other special nights announced include the 19th annual Negro Leagues tribute on April 27, the 43rd annual Polish-American night on May 24, the third annual classic car show on June 8, Christmas in July on July 31, the eighth annual Fiesta Tigres celebration on Aug. 3, and Star Wars night on Sept. 14.

Individual game tickets for the entire home schedule will go on sale Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. ET online at tigers.com, by phone at 866-66-TIGER, and in person at the Comerica Park box office and at Hockeytown Authentics in Troy.
