1942 Detroit Tigers Spring Training Pocket Schedule

Another terrific post from the great baseball fans at When we wore Fedora's.

Notice the schedule dates, February 22nd-April 6th.

Today's teams start much earlier, and ball clubs never get out of March before starting the regular season.

This year the Diamondbacks and Dodgers "start" the regular season in Australia next weekend.

Also, the pocket schedule has the Stars and Stripes waving proudly,  showing support for the United States Wartime cause during World War II.

Play Ball!

  1. As you may know, the Tigers have been holding spring training in Lakeland, FL since 1934, the longest consecutive streak of any team (excluding the 1943-45 war years, when every team trained locally).

    In 2nd place is the Phillies, who have been in Clearwater, FL since 1947.
