The Detroit Tigers are hosting the Kansas City Royals on Major League Baseball’s Opening Day. Brad Ausmus is also making his managerial debut for the Tigers.
“I’m assuming it will be similar to opening day, the first time I played an opening day,” Ausmus said, via ESPN. “Having been to Detroit, I know there will be a ton of energy in the stadium, having played opening day there before. I’m sure I’ll be excited about it, but you wouldn’t know it if you saw me.”
The Royals are looking for to traveling to Detroit too.
“We like playing the Tigers. Every time they come into town, or we go there, it’s a different energy when we play them, and it has to be,” Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer said. “They’re the ones we have to set out to get. That’s who we have to go through to win the division. We welcome the challenge.”
