Detroit Tigers 2023 spring training schedule begins, ends in Lakeland

Detroit Free Press

Major League Baseball has unveiled the spring training schedules for all 30 teams for 2023, and in a sign that things may be as close to normal as they were a few years ago, the Detroit Tigers‘ Grapefruit League slate looks like it did in 2019 or almost any year before.

The Tigers will play 32 exhibition games (not including the annual opener against a local college team) and will both start and end the tuneup contests at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Florida.

The schedule begins for the Tigers on Feb. 25 when the Philadelphia Phillies visit. The final spring training game will be March 26 against the Tampa Bay Rays in Lakeland. There are also three sets of split-squad games.

The World Baseball Classic will take place during spring training from March 8-21. Major and minor leaguers from many, if not all, 30 organizations are expected to participate.

Opening Day for the Tigers will be March 30 against those same Rays in St. Petersburg, Florida. The home opener at Comerica Park is April 6 against the Boston Red Sox.

In 2020, the spring training schedule ended early because of the pandemic. Last season, the schedule was abbreviated because of the MLB lockout that spilled into March.

Lakeland has been the host city of the Tigers’ home away from home since 1934, the longest running relationship between a MLB team and a spring training city. Joker Marchant Stadium has been their home in Florida since 1966.
