Fantasy camp to celebrate 35th anniversary of 1984 Tigers
The 1984 World Series-champion Tigers are about to celebrate their 35th anniversary.
And fans are getting their shot to be a part of the early festivities.
The 2019 Detroit Tigers Fantasy Camp will celebrate the franchise's last championship with as many as 20 members of that ballclub set to participate in the two, single-week segments — Jan. 20-27 and Jan. 27-Feb. 3 — at TigerTown in Lakeland, Fla.
New Hall-of-Famer Alan Trammell headlines the 1984 Tigers confirmed to participate, along with Dan Petry, Dave Rozema, Guillermo Hernandez, Tom Brookens, Johnny Grubb, Juan Berenguer, Doug Bair, Barbaro Garbey, Howard Johnson, Sid Monge, and Bill Scherer, among others. Former Tigers from other teams have committed, too, including the likes of Willie Horton, Mickey Lolich, Frank Tanana and Joel Zumaya.
The cost is $3,550, and includes hotel, meals, road and home uniforms and a week's worth of games, as well as late-night hobnobbing with those heroes from 1984. Participants also participate in a pre-camp BP session at Comerica Park.
This is the 36th year of the Detroit Tigers Fantasy Camp.
