I'm so disappointed in myself I can't tell you -- I've failed not only you the reader, but myself. Monday night the Tigers are hosting Zubazpalooza II at Comerica Park.
For the low, low price of $30, fans could purchase a special package for the game against the Yankees that includes not only a Mezzanine ticket, but also a pair of Tiger-colored Zubaz pants. Those packages sold out, but you better believe I'll be on the lookout for Zubazpalooza III and a road trip will be in order.
As the Roman numeral suggests, this is the second Zubazpalooza, with the team holding an event celebrating the pants last season. This year it may be extra special because this will be Prince FIelder's first Zubazpalooza as an employee of the Tigers. When his father was with the Tigers, a much younger Fielder famously sported the striped pants for a photo that was sent around the internets after his signing.
JACKPOT! Chubby, very young Prince Fielder throws a baseball during Tigers batting practice. And he's wearing Zubaz: twitter.com/si_vault/statu…— Andy Gray (@si_vault) January 24, 2012
