With Major League Baseball’s opening day quickly approaching the Detroit Tigers are getting ready to close up shop at their spring training home, Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, FL.
Friday’s matchup versus the Tampa Bay Rays was the last home game of Detroit’s Grapefruit League schedule and prior to the game the team was visited by Rocky, a baby Bengal tiger from the Dade City Wild Things Zoo.

The Tigers went on to win 8-3. Rocky was clearly the inspiration.
