DETROIT, Mich (wxyz) - Downtown Detroit is buzzing with Tigers excitement. People are singing, cheering, taking pictures and buying Tigers gear--hoping for a Game 3 victory.
There are signs and posters all over the city and flashing messages of hope. Fans from near and far are showing up around that famous tiger in front of Comerica Park.
"I've been a Tigers fan since 1968, and I can't wait for the game, I think we are going to do it," said Barry Fader from Niagra Falls, Ontario who had a ticket for Saturday's game.
