It is the time of year for tigers. No, not the frosted cereal enjoying ones or the ones we see in the zoo or on nature shows. It is time for Detroit Tigers baseball season. The Detroit Tigers have been playing baseball for over one hundred years, starting in 1901. Do you have some cool Detroit Tigers gear that you would like to show off? I would love to see some on our social media pages or drop by and say "hi" the next time you come into the library.
I sure love baseball. I really like tigers too (this time I am talking about the furry giant cats that are known for their orange and black stripes). I asked some of my librarian friends here at the library to put together some information about tigers, baseball, and the Detroit Tigers. Check out the lists below or ask a librarian if you visit us in person.
On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. Check out the following resources to learn more about his accomplishments and legacy, and discover other exciting players who fought to be included in America’s National Pastime. Titles about Robinson are at the top of the list, followed by other baseball players. Most of these titles are nonfiction, but look for a few bonus fiction titles at the end.
Check out this list that features one of our favorite striped felines. Learn more about tigers or chuckle as you read about fictitious cats.
