Memorabilia giveaways and autograph sessions will be part of the Detroit Tigers' plans to honor the 25th anniversary season of one of the greatest teams of all-time.

Members of the 1984 Detroit Tigers will be honored during an on-field, pregame ceremony on Monday, September 28 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Tigers World Series championship. Scheduled to participate in the 1984 World Championship 25th Anniversary reunion are Sparky Anderson, Darrell Evans, ALCS MVP Kirk Gibson, 1984 AL MVP and Cy Young winner Guillermo Hernandez, Jack Morris, Lance Parrish and World Series MVP Alan Trammell, among others.

Fans have the opportunity to interact with members of the 1984 Tigers from 5:15-6:10 p.m. either during a question and answer session in the Brushfire Grill or during photo opportunities at Sections 125 and 144. Additionally, the first 10,000 fans to enter Comerica Park will receive a free 1984 Detroit Tigers replica road jersey and throughout the game hundreds of fans will have a chance to win 1984 autographed memorabilia.

The 1984 Tigers finished with the best record in baseball that season and a franchise record for most wins in a season, posting a 104-58 record to win the American League East Division. The team swept the Kansas City Royals in three games to win the American League pennant and then defeated the San Diego Padres in five games during the Fall Classic. The Tigers captured the organization's fourth World Series title on October 14 that season, in front of 51,901 fans at Tiger Stadium.
