Thank you for making ¡Fiesta Tigres! 2011 a success.
Check back for 2012 information.

¡Fiesta Tigres!

On Saturday, August 20, 2011, the Tigers hosted the sixth annual ¡Fiesta Tigres! Celebration, sponsored by Miller Lite, to recognize and honor the contributions of Hispanic and Latino players to the game of baseball. The Tigers also welcomed 1984 American League MVP and Cy Young winner Guillermo Hernandez, who was honored in a special pregame ceremony and threw the ceremonial first pitch. The live music complemented the décor of flags from Spanish-speaking countries adorning the park along with photos of past and present Hispanic and Latino Tigers players.

In addition, current Tigers players with Hispanic or Latino heritage were honored during an on-field, pregame ceremony. Jorge Avellan from MyTV20 provided Spanish-language announcing during the ceremony and Roxanne Chantaca performed the national anthem. The first 10,000 fans 21-and-over received "Quién es su Tigre?" Playing Cards featuring 2011 Detroit Tigers players, courtesy of Miller Lite. The night concluded with a special postgame fireworks show presented by Verizon Wireless and AMP Radio. 5,000 copies of a special ¡Fiesta Tigres! edition of MiGente were given to fans upon exiting the ballpark.
