Tigers fans in Detroit are gearing up for a Hall of Fame weekend most believe is long overdue.

Alan Trammell and Jack Morris will both enter Cooperstown's baseball shrine.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is paying tribute to the pair with a light display downtown. The company is lighting up its Detroit Tower office with the players' jersey numbers 3 and 47.

“Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is proud to celebrate two hometown athletes who helped the Detroit Tigers capture the world series and most historic moments,” BCBS president and CEO Daniel J. Loepp said via statement.

The illumination began on Monday, and will last through August 2.
