behind the Tigers’ dugout!

Aunt Bianca received free front row tickets to a Detroit Tigers’ game, and she kindly invited Rebecca to join her!

Outfielders Dirks and Hunter head to the dugout. I’m amazed how close these seats are to the field! [Much closer than the upper deck where we sat last year.]

No way we could afford these on-deck circle tickets; what a perk from Aunt Bianca’s employer!

That’s Rebecca’s glove on the dugout roof:)

How exciting to see last season’s Triple Crown winner, Miguel Cabrera, so closely!

Detroit triumphed 6 to 4, extending the Tigers’ lead in the American League Central to 4 1/2 games.

Pitchers Verlander and Scherzer were among the players who emerged from the dugout to celebrate.

By the way, all photos in this post, except where noted, were captured by Rebecca with my old Canon.
