My new Tigers book is filled with history and fun

Written By: Terry Foster | March 26, 2013

Filed Under: sports, Tigers

I did not want to make this a typical Tigers history book. I wanted it to be fun.

Yes, you can read about the history of Tiger Stadium, Hank Greenberg and former General Manager Jim Campbell in my Tigers book called “100 Things Tiger Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die.” But I also wanted to have fun with it.

I placed myself in the book because some of the experiences I wrote about were from working at the old Lindell A.C., which was Detroit’s first real sports bar. I chronicled the reaction of my children when the Tigers traded their favorite player Curtis Granderson to the New York Yankees. Where are the best spots to watch the game on television? What are my favorite sports bars around Comerica Park? And what are some of the unusual spots in Comerica Park?

This is an update of a book I wrote in 2009. A lot has happened since then. Prince Fielder became a Tiger. Justin Verlander won a Cy Young and Most Valuable Player and I got to experience new and funny times when manager Jim Leyland holds court with the media in his office. And on page 218 is the best game I ever experienced as a dad. That was the day the Tigers rallied from a three-run deficit to beat the Cleveland Indians in 10 innings. It was great because I experienced it with my son Brandon. His reaction was priceless.

I hope you learn more about your home town team, but I also hope some of my experiences relate to some of the things you went through as a Tigers fan. The book will be available at Barnes and Noble book stores around metro Detroit. My first book signing is Saturday (2-4 pm) at the Barnes and Nobles in West Bloomfield on Orchard Lake Road.

I look to meet with fans from across the region. I also want to hold book signings in metro Detroit and a couple of places are interested. I will keep you posted on future signings on face book and twitter at TerryFoster971.

(If any sports bars or charity organizations are interested in hosting a book signing email me at Terry.Foster@detnews.com. Or leave a message at
