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.
