Tigers to celebrate 30th anniversary of '84 title

DETROIT -- The Tigers will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1984 World Series championship on Monday, June 30, with a pregame ceremony ahead of their series opener against Oakland and a question-and-answer session beforehand with several members of the Tigers' last title-winning club.

Alan Trammell, 1984 World Series MVP, is scheduled to make the trip. The D-backs coach has an off-day on his schedule in the middle of Arizona's road trip. Trammell's double-play partner, Lou Whitaker, is also slated to make the trip. D-backs manager and former Tigers outfielder Kirk Gibson is currently not scheduled to attend.

Others slated to attend include Dan Petry, Juan Berenguer, Dave Bergman, Tom Brookens, Darrell Evans, Barbaro Garbey, Alex Grammas, John Grubb, Dave Rozema, Rod Allen, Doug Bair, Doug Baker and coach Dick Tracewski.

For the first 20,000 fans through the gates, the celebration will begin early with a 1984 replica road jersey. A roundtable discussion begins at 5 p.m. ET at the Big Cat Court, where fans can ask players about their favorite memories from that season.

The on-field ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m.
