The nerds over at the Detroit Tigers' social media team deserve a raise.
The team took to Twitter to announce its opening day lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays with a nostalgic, 8-bit Nintendo Major League Baseball
spoof that should appeal to fans of a certain age.
The Tigers opening day lineup is as follows:
1. Josh Harrison, 2B
2. Nicholas Castellanos, RF
3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
4. Jeimer Candelario, 3B
5. Niko Goodrum, DH
6. Christin Stewart, LF
7. Grayson Greiner, C
8. Jordy Mercer, SS
9. Mikie Mahtook, CF
P. Jordan Zimmerman
You can watch the clip below. The Tigers face off against the Blue Jays at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, and play their first game in Detroit against the Kansas City Royals on Thursday, April 4.
