The Tigers Yearbook serves as an excellent yearly souvenir for Tigers fans. This year’s book contains special baseball card style player pages, complete with stats. A special feature takes a look back at American League Cy Young Award Winner and Most Valuable Player Justin Verlander’s historic 2011 season and the elite group of Tigers players he joined by winning the awards.
The first of five editions, Tigers Magazine takes a look at Prince Fielder who shares with readers how it feels and what it means to be playing for the team he spent so much time with as a child. Tigers fans get a glimpse of Justin Verlander’s eventful off-season, which included commercials, an appearance on the Conan O’ Brien Show and being selected as the cover of the new MLB2K12 video game.
