So how do you watch the Tigers face the Indians on Thursday at Comerica Park? Just tune into the newly named Bally Sports Detroit, which used to be Fox Sports Detroit. Fans can still listen to the Tigers on WXYT-FM 97.1.
The Opening Day forecast is about what Midwesterners have come to expect for the beginning of baseball season: Cloudy skies and highs in the 30s.
Matthew Boyd will make his second straight Game 1 start for the Tigers after a strong spring. Shane Bieber — last year’s American League Cy Young Award winner — takes the bump on Opening Day for Cleveland, similar to last year.
