I like writing about the Detroit Tigers because I've been a huge baseball fan ever since the Tigers won their World Series Title back in 1968.

The Detroit Tigers have been around since 1901 and have won four World Series championships. Champions in 1935, 1945, 1968, and 1984.

Will the Detroit Tigers win another World Series championship? Fingers crossed here, but I'm fairly confident they can do it again some day.

At least for now here in 2022, the Tigers aren't doing so well. Their current record as it stands is 34 wins and 47 losses.

However, they did sweep the series against the Cleveland Guardians at Comerica Park. Here's what mlive.com had to say:

The Tigers (34-47) swept the four-game series from the Guardians (40-40) and have a four-game win streak for just the second time this year.

With the upcoming All-Star baseball game coming our way very soon, this primarily puts the baseball season at the midway point of the season.

There are 162 baseball games scheduled for the entire baseball season, the Tigers have played 81 games with a long way to go to finish the season.

Mlive.com tells us:

The Tigers will play their next 14 games on the road, beginning with four-game series in Chicago against the White Sox. The opener is Thursday at 8:10 p.m. Eastern time.

It's hard to believe, but I haven't been to any home Tiger games this summer. They're back home later this month on July 23, which gives me plenty of chances to buy tickets for upcoming home games.

It's not a surprise that the Tigers are struggling this season, which is certainly not a shocker. I just think all Detroit Tiger fans are ready to see things turn around at some point. GO TIGERS!
