DETROIT (WOOD) — Plane trouble in Boston meant the Detroit Tigers were delayed in getting to Cleveland Monday, and allowed for a look into the team’s personality.
Detroit played the Boston Red Sox Sunday evening, beating them for a sweep, but didn’t fly out of Boston until 3 p.m. Monday.
They traveled in Zubaz active wear outfits, decked out in tigers stripes.
Outfielder Rajai Davis posted a photo on Twitter of the team on a bus after their plane broke down Sunday. In another photo posted to Instagram by pitcher Justin Verlander, he, right fielder Torii Hunter and first baseman Miguel Cabrera are among the Tigers hamming it up for the camera.
The Tigers appear to be getting along quite well.
“Some guys didn’t brush their teeth, some guys didn’t shower, some just stink, but we’re bonding,” Hunter said after landing in Ohio around 4 p.m. Monday.
Detroit currently has the best record in the MLB at 27-12 and is leading the American League Central division.
